Many of you are accustomed to our email/newsletters. Some of you are seeing this for the first time. If you do not have time to read our email now, please print it out and read it later. Our next Failte 32 periodical will be after the Summer.
The New York Irish Center, under the leadership of Paul Finnegan, will be our featured organization for July/August www.newyorkirishcenter.org.
Sincere thanks to the following:
Aoife Butler, Senior Associate with the law firm Alston & Bird, and Founder of the Irish Network-USA (www.irishnetwork-usa.com), for compiling the multiple job listings below to help any Summer J1’ers who have not yet found a job.
Joe Mcmanus who informed us that he may know of a couple of open positions available for Summer J1’ers. Joe, who is past President of the United Irish Counties Assoc. (www.uicany.org), has been a great supporter of Failte 32 and recently brought a J1 visa holder along to an Irish event at Lincoln Center where he was introduced to a number of people who gave him a number of leads, and he will hopefully get a job out of it. You can reach Joe at 917 681 4479. This shows that by attending the events of Failte 32’s affiliated organizations you will at the very least get very good job leads. See below for upcoming events in the Irish American community which by attending may help you find employment.
On leaving the Lincoln Center after the event, we were approached by a young artist who handed us a flyer from the Clean Actors Guild www.cleanactorsguild.com. Founded in 2005, they are a group of professional actors putting their collective decades of “day job” experience to work. We found this a very creative way of finding work, and see no reason why a group of Summer J1 visa holders could not develop a similar type of job initiative. Failte 32 would be glad to assist Summer J1’ers start such an initiative.
Tom Kennedy, President of the Kerry Assoc. New York for assisting us find employment for Summer J1′ ers from the Kerry region.
John Dallaire, Manager/owner Maidpro (www.maidpro.com) Long Island City, who informed us that there are open positions at the airport. Auntie Anne’s Pretzel’s. There are a few companies hiring there. If you are interested, please let us know at [email protected].
John Murphy, Director & Counsel at UBS Investment Bank, and Former President of the Irish Network-NYC (www.irishnetwork-nyc.com), is looking for one or two people (preferably female) on a suitable work visa who might be interested in – baby-sitting/day-minding of their one year-old son James! 5-6 hours a week, and in addition, they often need a babysitter at night. Any summer student with flexible hours and a responsible head on their shoulders might find this $15/hour (the going rate) job an opportunity. If interested, please send email to [email protected] . Many thanks John and Carly!

Alumni Spotlight Series:
Irish Children’s Literature
Oliver Goldsmith to Oliver Jeffreys
An evening discussion with Dr. Padraic Whyte
Who does not recall with pleasure the early impressions of childhood reading? What cultural and historical references were we absorbing as we read? Please join us and discover a new appreciation of a familiar area of Irish culture.
Padraic Whyte is Lecturer in Children’s Literature at the School of English, Trinity College Dublin. He is author of Irish Childhoods: Children’s Fiction and Irish History and numerous articles, essays and contributions to books on Irish children’s literature. Dr. Whyte is co-director of the recently established M.Phil in Children’s Literature, which is supported by The Pollard Collection of Children’s Books. The Pollard collection was bequeathed to TCD in 2005 by Mary “Paul” Pollard and consists of 10,000 texts ranging from the 17th century to the early 20th century.
Dr Whyte’s current research focuses on the links between Ireland, America and Children’s Literature. It was Dr. Whyte who had the idea to present a first edition of Padraic Colum’s Hawaiian tales and legends for children to President Barack Obama when he visited Dublin last month, as a gift for his daughters.
