    Minister meeting with NY undocumented

    By Noreen Bowden | July 24, 2007

    Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources Eamon Ryan is meeting with undocumented Irish immigrants in New York today. The Green Party member is visiting the Emerald Isle Immigration Center in the Bronx, then going to the Aisling Irish Community Center in Yonkers, and then meeting with the undocumented in Eileen’s Country Kitchen, a Yonkers restaurant. Later tonight, the Irish Times is reporting he is meeting with the “Young Irish Network”, where he will be accompanied by Niall Mellon, a property developer who is best¬†known in Ireland for his work mobilising volunteers to build homes in impoverished areas of South Africa.

    Mr Ryan will meet with New York City speaker Christine Quinn, the highest-ranking elected politician in New York politics. He will travel by train to Washington for a meeting of the European-American Business Council and also meet with US officials on environmental and communication issues.

    The Green Party politician will travel by subway while in New York, instead of limosine, and the government has bought carbon offsets for the very first time to compensate for the emissions produced by the trip.
