Asserting that the globe is set on the course of wireless connectivity that will irrevocably alter human interaction, Dunne, who was born in Ireland, remarked, “It’s really, really important the role that governing Irish bodies play in making sure that the diaspora will remain connected with each other, but also connected with Ireland.” He went on to praise the I.I.B.N. for its accomplishments, complimenting the organization’s “strong credibility among both the business community and among a younger generation of Irish diaspora, which is a really, really powerful thing.” ♦
