    Ean quoted in Irish Echo story on US-Ireland Forum

    By Noreen Bowden | November 16, 2007

    Ean has received a mention in the Irish Echo’s article on the US-Ireland Forum.

    The article, by Stephen McKinley, describes the events of the conference.

    The relevant quote:

    “It’s an exciting time to be involved with Diaspora issues,” said Noreen Bowden, a first-generation Irish New Yorkers who lives in Dublin, and is director of the Emigrant Advice Network. Summing up her feelings about the forum’s success, she welcomed the news that the forum would be organized again next year.

    “One thing that cropped up a few times was the idea of political participation; giving emigrants some voice in the political process is something that Ireland should probably revisit now,” Bowden said. “Almost every other developed nation in the world allows its emigrants to vote, even if living permanently in another country.”
