It was smiles all around this week with news of the selection of Ronan Connolly in this year’s Irish Echo ’40 Under 40′ list. Ronan is Stiúrthóir/Director at Let’s Learn Irish and has been teaching the ‘cúpla focal’ in the USA since 2009. The annual event is a celebration of Irish and Irish-Americans who have distinguished themselves in their respective fields of work by the age of forty.
There will also be a People’s Choice Award on the evening; you can show your support for Irish students and teachers in the USA by voting for Ronan at IrishEcho.com, or by clicking here. Voting ends this Thursday, and presentations will take place in New York City on Friday, Feb 28th. A big ‘go raibh míle maith agat’ to everyone who has voted so far!
