John McIntyre of Enterprise Ireland hosted the networking event at Best Place at the historic Pabst Brewery in Milwaukee. Also supporting the event were Irish Fest, the Golden Angels investment group, and Irish Network San Francisco & Chicago.
We had a great turnout for the networking event I hosted in Blue Ribbon hall at the historic Pabst Brewery. Many thanks for the support from Irish Fest (Jane Anderson, Joe King), Marquette University & Milwaukee Golden Angels investment group (Tim Keane, Mike Szymanski), Best Place (Jim Haertel, Kim Dorfner), and Irish Network San Francisco & Chicago (Helen Garrahy). We also enjoyed our special visitors Minister Éamon Ó Cuív TD and Consul General Martin Rouine. The Trinity Irish dancers were also fantastic!
The business networking was an extension of the Irish Fest which is the largest Irish cultural festival and had over 100,000 people in attendance on the shores of Lake Michigan.
