Posted By: January 05, 2019

CAPITOL HILL. Friday, January 4, 2019— The president of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus has welcomed Congressman Eliot Engel (D-NY) becoming the Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

Fr. Sean Mc Manus said:”Congressman Engel has shown a deep and consistent interest in justice, equality, and peace in Ireland. He carried on the tradition of his predecessor, the great Congressman Mario Biaggi. And, now, as Chairman, he will follow the tradition of the other great Jewish-American Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, my dear friend the late Congressman Ben Gilman (R-NY). I shall forever be grateful for the magnificent support  Jewish-American Members of Congress have shown for the Irish cause. God bless them all.
