Inaugural Martin McGuinness Peace Foundation Walk New York
A message from our good friends at the Martin McGuinness Peace Foundation New York.
Irish America is at it again. They clearly have not forgotten Martin McGuinness as they have formed the Martin McGuinness Peace Foundation-NYC and scheduled a Chieftain’s Walk for September 19th in NYC.
The walk and the foundation are mirrored after the same efforts of Martin’s family and friends from Derry. It was always clear that Martin had a true affection for America and made many friends during his visits.
It is a testament to his worth that Irish America continues to honor his legacy.
The walk is going to be along the west side Greenway of lower Manhattan. It is most fittingly commencing and finishing at the Irish Hunger Memorial.
Prior to commencement, U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer will provide opening remarks to kick off the event. The participants in the walk will also be entertained by the very talented Cathy Maguire.
The organizers have also arranged to have water and light snacks available for all those that participate. Participants will also receive mementos from the Chieftain’s Walk in Derry that was held in August.
The organizers are welcoming anyone interested in supporting the Martin McGuinness Peace foundation. For more information check out the event page here.
