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.

We'll gather in the Charlemont Bar for drinks from 6:30 PM where football will be on, and set up our receiving table at 7:00 PM in advance of dinner at 7:30 PM.

Following dinner we are honoured to welcome legendary film director Jim Sheridan as our guest speaker. Mr. Sheridan needs no introduction as his work is known the world over: My Left Foot (Daniel Day-Lewis, Brenda Fricker), The Field (Richard Harris, John Hurt, Sean Bean), In The Name of The Father (Day-Lewis, Emma Thompson, Pete Postlethwaite), The Boxer (Day-Lewis), In America (Samantha Morton, Paddy Considine), Get Rich or Die Tryin' (50 Cent, Terence Howard), Brothers (Natalie Portman, Jake Gyllenhaal, Toby Maguire). Mr. Sheridan has just completed a short film with Selma Hayak called 11th Hour that takes place in a Manhattan bar on 9/11. He is also the curator of the Dublin Arabic Film Festival at the Irish Film Institute

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!
