Greatest Irish Americans Book Launch
By Irish America Staff
June / July 2001
Irish Tenor Ronan Tynan and actor Milo O’Shea were just two of the Irish luminaries who turned out to celebrate the launch of Greatest Irish Americans of the 20th Century edited by our own Patricia Harty. The event was hosted by Mutual of America in their beautiful Sky Club, 35 floors above Park Avenue in New York City.
Several of the authors who contributed essays to the book, including Frank McCourt and Mary Higgins Clark, were on hand.
Also in attendance were Mutual America’s Chairman Bill Flynn, President and CEO Tom Moran, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., former governor Hugh Carey and singer K.T. Sullivan. ♦
