Memories of the 2013 Tip O’Neill weekend.
Hello and a very warm welcome to the Irish Diaspora award website.
There are numerous people of Irish ancestry in the worldwide Diaspora who deserve to be recognised in the Country of their ancestors and this award will acknowledge the achievements of those individuals.
This award is to recognise and pay tribute to one of Inishowen’s most famous descendants, Mr Tip O’Neill, both for his outstanding achievements in American political life and especially for his invaluable commitment to the search for a lasting peace and on the island of Ireland.
Donegal promises wild landscapes blanketed in bog and heather, isolated white sandy beaches and a roughly hewn coastline. And when all of the cobwebs have been blown away, thriving little towns with cosy pubs, excellent seafood and a friendly welcome await.
