The American Ireland Fund



The Ireland Funds were set up by Sir Anthony O’Reilly and Mr Dan Rooney in the Waldorf Astoria, New York in 1976 and are dedicated to supporting peace and reconciliation, arts & culture, education and community development throughout the island of Ireland. To date they have successfully raised in excess of $500 million for projects in the 32 counties of Ireland.
