Join us for an informational webinar to discuss the new research findings from a nationwide survey on Irish Americans, commissioned by Glucksman Ireland House and the Council for American Irish Relations. The Survey, conducted by nationally rated firm Change Research, polled 736 Irish Americans nationwide in January of 2023.
The survey shows that Irish Americans, despite being many generations removed from Ireland, continue to be attracted to their Irish heritage because of Irish history and culture, as well as the positive perceptions of Irish identity in the US.
For those in Ireland and America who are seeking ways to engage young Irish Americans, the key takeaways from the survey are:
- to provide more opportunities for young Irish Americans to study, volunteer, and work in Ireland
- devote more resources to Irish studies in US colleges
- lobby for immigration reform for Irish immigrants in the US
- give Irish citizens overseas the ability to vote in Irish presidential elections

Professor Kevin Kenny, Director of Glucksman Ireland House, will moderate the webinar panel which will include: Michael Carroll, Council for American Irish Relations, Ted Smyth, President of the Advisory Board of Glucksman Ireland House, as well as Molly McInerney and Ben Sullivan, representatives from Change Research.
