Mr. Ciarán Madden, Consul General of Ireland, New York and the

Aisling Irish Community Center

cordially invite you to

“An Evening with Denis Mulcahy and the Mulcahy Scholarship”

Thursday April 18, 2019

7:30pm

American Scandinavian Foundation

Victor Borge Hall

58 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016

The Mulcahy Scholarship has been established by the Aisling Irish Community Center in tribute to the Mulcahy family’s commitment to Project Children, a charity that changed the lives of so many people. The scholarship program is sending students to Ireland to participate in educational summer courses, where they experience Irish culture, heritage, arts and sport.

The evening will include a screening of the extraordinary documentary, “How to Defuse a Bomb: The Project Children Story”, a powerful feature film that celebrates the unsullied hard work and dedication of the Project Children Charity and one of its founding members, Denis Mulcahy, a retired and highly decorated NYPD Bomb Squad Officer.

The film documents the pursuit of reconciliation in Northern Ireland, through the medium of its children. Offering over 22,000 children a six-week summer reprieve from the intrinsic, sectarian violence of “The Troubles”, this remarkable tale resonates with all that is good in this world.

Seating is limited so to register for this event, please e-mail: linda@savvyconsultinginc.com
