The Irish American Partnership hosted its inaugural New York Business Leaders Breakfast in New York in April. Bernie Brennan, president of the Royal Dublin Society, delivered the keynote address and was presented with a $20,000 check to support R.D.S. science fairs in primary schools in Limerick and Belfast. “We want it to take root that math and science is accessible to everyone,” she said. To exemplify the impact of the grants, I.A.P. chief executive Mary Sugrue quoted a letter she received from a school principal in Mayo: “I hope you realize the power of your generosity.”
