The New York
Irish Center Presents

Home Away From Home This Christmas
Airs December 24 @ 2 PM EST (7PM Ireland)

A celebration of Ireland’s greatest writers from Ireland’s most loved artists

From W. B. Yeats to Frank McCourt
Directed by George C. Heslin
Produced by Turlough McConnell

The New York Irish Center brings comfort and joy to those prevented from returning to Ireland due to Covid-19.

Last year, around 1.2 million people traveled through Ireland’s airports during the Christmas period. This year there will be fewer travelers so we can be together safely in the future.

The New York Irish Center has assembled some of the finest names in the Irish entertainment industry from both sides of the Atlantic.

Irish performers will perform works with a Christmas theme. The 90-minute program will be streamed by the New York Irish Center.

Join us here:

Special guests include:
Sarah Binchy, Phil Coulter, Seána Davey
Phelim Drew, Adrian Dunbar, Fionnula Flanagan, Kwaku Fortune, Gregory Harrington, Geraldine Hughes, Christine Kinealy, Cathy Maguire, Colum McCann, Malachy McCourt, Paul Meade, Johnny Meyer & Friends, Dearbhla Molloy, Declan O’Rourke, Alan Stanford & Surprise Guests

The presentation will be available until January 3, 2021 on the New York Irish Center YouTube channel and Website.
