Posted By: March 29, 2013

U.S. Rep. Benjamin A. Gilman (R-NY)

“The work of the Irish National Caucus has been invaluable to me as a Member of Congress who is deeply dedicated to the cause of peace and freedom in Ireland. Working with the Caucus, the Congressional Ad Hoc Committee on Northern Ireland has been able to explore the issues of human rights in Ireland, discrimination against the minority population in Ireland and the banning of the plastic bullet. The work of the Caucus has been first-rate.”

U.S. Senator Alphonse D’Amato (R-NY)

“It is the voice of the Irish National Caucus that continues to provide a loud clarion call in bringing to the attention of this country the plight of Northern Ireland. Their efforts should be supported and commended.”

Former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley (D-NJ)

“Please extend my greetings to the members of the Irish National Caucus and all the Irish-American community. I am proud to join in celebrating your efforts to end all violence and terrorism in Northern Ireland. I believe that a peaceful solution to this political situation will come only when Britain sets a timetable for withdrawal. Then the prospect of unity with Ireland will be real. I look forward to working with you in the continuing effort to advance the protections of human rights in Ireland.”

U.S. Senator James M. Jeffords (R-VT)

“. . . I deeply appreciate and commend the efforts of the Irish National Caucus to promote a peaceful resolution to the strife in Ulster. After centuries of bloodshed, a solution can surely be found. Your good work is a tremendous contribution…”
