Event Details

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. 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 Stephen Donnelly as our guest speaker. Stephen is the Social Democrat TD for Wicklow and East Carlow & has spent considerable time in the US: he has been a visiting scholar at MIT, holds a Masters from the Harvard Kennedy School in Public Administration & International Development, & worked in Washington DC for Dahlberg Global Advisors. He ran for office in 2011, in response to Ireland’s growing economic and social crises.The Irish Times‍ '​s recognised Donnelly as their 2012 Politician of the Year for his measured contributions on Ireland's financial crisis. We are honoured & delighted he 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!
