Event Details

Can you believe it's been a year since we last celebrated Thanksgiving with our guest speaker George Hook?  It has, and after attracting our biggest ever Turkey Day crowd last year, we're ready to bust out again.

It's our traditional Thanksgiving dinner complete with football, family, and fare. It will be another knockout menu with something for everyone - and plenty of it. The Hilton will be our venue again - they love having us and they go all out for Thanksgiving.

The bar will be open and football will be on the big screen beginning at 5:00 PM. Arrive any time you like - we will set up our receiving table at 6:00 PM and we can enjoy pre-dinner drinks in advance of dinner at 7:30 PM.

Following dinner we are honoured to welcome Tánaiste Joan Burton as our guest speaker. As Tánaiste Joan is the 2nd most senior person in the Irish government and also holds the office of Minister for Social Protection. Joan is the 1st woman to lead the Labour Party and continues as TD for the Dublin West constituency. We are delighted she is able to join us.

Democrats Abroad Ireland

Democrats Abroad Ireland are a diverse group of US citizens from many backgrounds - American-born, Irish returned emigrants from the US, and people from elsewhere - working towards the election of Democratic candidates. 

We engage in voter registration, fundraising, phone-banking, and other strategies to strengthen the Democratic party.  We meet monthly to plan, encourage voter registration, and discuss topics of the day.  And we have quite a bit of fun along the way too.  

If you are an American citizen, you're welcome to join us! First - register to vote at, and second - join Democrats Abroad!
