I just want to say how important the work is that the Irish Cultural Center is doing. It’s incredibly important for Ireland, it’s incredibly important for people of Irish heritage, it’s incredibly important for everybody who loves good culture and wants to add special things to the world, and that’s exactly what the Cultural Center does.
