Northern Ireland Bureau Welcomes WIP Class of 2023

The Northern Ireland Bureau welcomed the WIP Class of 2018 to DC on Monday, June 5th 2023 at the Homer Building in downtown Washington.

The evening was also an opportunity to recognize and appreciate the host families, work placements, and the entire supporter community. The speaking portion of the evening included remarks from the Director of the Northern Ireland Bureau Andrew Elliott, along with WIP Class of 2023 students Karl Duncan and Eimear Willet.

Karl, who is working at the office of Congressman Mike Quigley this summer, spoke passionately about growing up in Northern Ireland, his personal and educational journey, and the optimism he shares with the Washington Ireland Program for the future of Northern Ireland and Ireland.

Many thanks to the Bureau for hosting a wonderful evening and joining us as we welcomed the WIP Class of 2023, host families, and work placements to the beginning of another wonderful summer.

The Washington Ireland Program supports, inspires, and develops leaders from a wide range of communities and backgrounds who are committed to building a future of peace and prosperity for Northern Ireland and Ireland.
