In recognition of our 225th Anniversary, Ireland’s newly-appointed ambassador to Canada, Ray Bassett, visited Halifax this spring. He attended the Society’s AGM and spoke about his work history and his excitement at being here in Canada. While he was in Halifax, he was guest speaker at the Holy Cross Restoration fundraising dinner, a 225th Anniversary event. He met with business and political leaders and visited Irish historic sites including our Celtic Cross. He’s shown with our president Brian Downie.
