About this Event

A variety of guest speakers and performers will tell stories of Ireland and New York over a specially themed dinner for 250 friends, family and invited guests. Guest Speakers include the NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neill and Founder of WearingIrish, Margaret Molloy. Artists reading and performing on the night include Malachy McCourt and HBO’s Qool DJ Marv, with more to be announced.

More About James O'Neill

James P. O’Neill was appointed the 43rd New York City police commissioner in September 2016. He developed the NYPD’s neighborhood-policing model that is credited with producing greater police and community interaction while continuing to drive down crime.

Police Commissioner O’Neill grew up in Brooklyn and began his career in 1983 with the then-independent Transit Police Department. He rose to lieutenant by the time of its 1995 merger with the NYPD. He then worked at the Police Academy and the Warrant Squad before promoting to captain and a post as the executive officer of the 52nd Precinct. He later served as the commanding officer of the Central Park, the 25th, and the 44th Precincts.

Promoting to inspector and then deputy chief, Commissioner O’Neill served successively as commanding officer of the Vice, Narcotics, and Fugitive Enforcement Divisions. In March 2014, he was appointed commanding officer of Police Commissioner William Bratton’s office. As chief of patrol from June 2014, he developed the Neighborhood Policing Program, which focuses on crime-fighting and local, individualized problem-solving.

Following his December 2014 promotion to chief of department, the NYPD’s highest uniformed rank, Commissioner O’Neill ensured that neighborhood policing was the largest, best-funded, best-staffed community-based plan ever undertaken in the United States.

More About Malachy McCourt

Malachy is perhaps best known in Ireland through his brother Frank McCourt’s memoir Angela's Ashes, subsequently portrayed by Peter Halpin in the film version of that book, and in the novel 'Tis.. In New York however, he is better known as an artist, an author, a publican, a politician, and activist, a gatherer of people, and an occasional rogue.

Born in New York City to Angela Sheehan and Malachy McCourt, he is the last surviving child from among seven McCourt siblings. Raised in Limerick, Malachy returned to the United States in 1952.

Malachy wrote two memoirs of his own titled, respectively, A Monk Swimming and Singing My Him Song, detailing his life in Ireland and later return to the United States where, despite limited education, he operated a successful Manhattan tavern frequented by entertainment celebrities. He authored a book on the history of the ballad Danny Boy, and curated a collection of Irish writings, called 'Voices of Ireland'. He ran for Governor of New York in 2006, and was one of the four founding members of the Manhattan Rugby Football Club in 1960.

More About Qool DJ Marv

Since 1994, Marv has been producing mixed tapes/CD compilations that illuminate the many styles of music that he loves but have fallen short of major exposure and marketing. The series “Beats, Jazz, & Soul” and “Qool Classics” are adored by people from all walks of life from all over the globe. People enjoy the meticulous attention to the sequencing and the seamless continuity of the mixing. Qool DJ Marv has a way of introducing genre-defying songs to listeners who previously may have only preferred popular mainstream offerings.

It’s Qool DJ Marv’s laid-back demeanor and the playfully enchanting smile that you first notice. He is genuinely pleased to meet you and despite his even keel, he’s bubbling at the thought of what he has in store for your listening, dancing, and celebratory pleasure. There’s an exuberant idealism in Marv’s appealing mix that bridges us all – with a universal vibe, everybody gets down.
