03 November 2017

To mark the first anniversary of the election of US President Donald Trump this Wednesday, November 8th, Senator Aodhán Ó Ríordáin is again joining with others in taking an ‘Irish Stand’ against his policies.

 Senator Ó Ríordáin said:

“This Wednesday makes the first anniversary of the election of Donald J Trump as the 45th President of the United States.

“His tenure has been defined by unprecedented levels of vindictive, racist, xenophobic and extremist rhetoric and actions.

“As he surrounds himself with Irish-Americans, it is important that we take a stand against him and what he represents,” concluded Senator Ó Ríordáin.

‘Irish Stand’ will take to the stage at  Liberty Hall Theatre in Dublin from 7pm, and feature a host of performers including Panti Bliss, David O’Doherty and Frances Black.

Tickets cost €21.60, with all proceeds going to the Irish Refugee Council’s work with young people in direct provision.

NOTES TO EDITORS:

‘Irish Stand’ was established as a grassroots campaign following Senator Ó Ríordáin viral speech regarding Donald Trump in the wake of the US Presidential Election.

On St Patrick’s Day earlier this year in New York, ‘Irish Stand’ attracted 1,500 people to a rally in the Riverside Church and raised over $20,000 for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

Next Wednesday ‘Irish Stand’ will take to the stage in Liberty Hall Theatre, featuring performers such as Frances Black, Panti Bliss and David O’Doherty, as well as a host of  international speakers, including Dr Terry McGovern, who is determined that her mother’s killing in New York on 9-11 will not be used as rallying cry for hate.

All proceeds go to the Irish Refugee Council’s work with young people in direct provision.

The ticket price is the weekly rate for an adult in Direct Provision.
