Irish Government Honors B.C. For Outreach Efforts

Boston College was honored for its contributions to Ireland at a special state reception held March 20 in Dublin.

University President William P. Leahy, SJ, Executive Vice President Frank B. Campanella and Center for Irish Management Director Sean Rowland were guests at the event, hosted by Deputy Prime Minister Dick Spring.

Fr. Leahy was presented with a Waterford crystal figurine in recognition of the University's initiatives which have helped support economic and management development in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, such as the executive training programs offered by CIM and its forerunner, the Development of Entrepreneurs in Boston for Ireland program. Besides providing tailor-made programs in such areas as executive development and tourism management, both ventures have helped foster closer relationships between the Irish and American business communities.

During their three-day stay in Dublin, Fr. Leahy, Campanella and Rowland also held a series of visits with Irish government officials and representatives from the business, academic and cultural communities.
