Karen Keane – Vice President
This will mark the 40th anniversary of the Hibernian relationship with the Cushwa Center. This year’s lecture “America and the Irish Revolution 1916-1922,” will be presented by Ruan O’Donnell at 4:30p.m. in McKenna Hall Rooms 100-104. If you are planning to attend the lecture, please contact me by email. There is a dinner for any Hibernian who attends the lecture, if you let me know in advance. If you are planning to stay in the South Bend Area, a block of rooms have been reserved at the Inn at St. Mary’s, (574) 232-4000, please ask for the Ladies Hibernian rate.
For those who have registered to attend: parking can sometimes be a challenge on campus. Our best suggestion is to drive to the entrance of the Morris Inn (1399 N Notre Dame Ave, South Bend, IN 46617) upon arrival and mention that you’re attending the Hibernian Lecture and Dinner. The parking staff can provide valet service ($10) if space allows or a car tag with directions to the nearest available self-parking lot. The Main Building and Geddes Hall are each about a
10- or 15-minute walk from the Morris Inn or the lots near it.
We look forward to seeing some of you on Friday at our 2:00 p.m. meeting, and the rest at the 4:30 p.m. lecture and 6:00 p.m. reception and dinner.
