The Tip O’ Neill International Summer School Mallow in County Cork,
Ireland at a weekend date in September 2021.

To whom it may concern,
We are pleased to inform you, to mark 4th July – Independence Day, the Irish in Europe Association (International) aisbl (IEAI) have issued a policy document to establish the Tip O’ Neill International Summer School – Mallow.
Please see the Policy Document Below:Policy-Document-to-establish-The-Tip-O’-Neill-International-Summer-School-MallowCo.-Cork.-Ireland-4th-July-2020-1
The main aim of the Summer School will be “Strengthening the Irish Bridge between the United States of America & Europe.
The policy document details the aims, philosophy and roadmap set out for the Tip O’ Neill International Summer School Mallow for your perusal.
This School will not be one weekend end event, it will be an ongoing process to grow relations between Mallow & North Cork with Rathmullan/Buncrana & Inishowen in Donegal, relations between Cork, Derry, Boston and Leuven in Belgium and also relations between the Capitals; Washington, Dublin and Brussels and later extending to other areas in the USA and Europe. It will a join-up our Irish in Europe Networks with the Irish American and other Diaspora networks in the USA. We would have preferred to have all the above-mentioned Stakeholders present at an inaugural Memorial Address/ Lecture & press conference to launch policy document to establish Summer School launch. This was unable to take place due to logistics to comply Public Health Regulations.
It will build on the work over the past thirty years of the Tip O’ Neill Committees in Mallow and Donegal, on the work done by Mallow Heritage Committee of the Mallow Partnership, the former Mallow Urban District Council, Kanturk Mallow Municipal District, Cork County and City Councils, Universities, Libraries, the O’ Neill Family and many other individuals. It will also complement the work of the different groups in the USA that commemorate the life and work of Tip O’ Neill.
It will start small; it has been well thought out and it will help Ireland to be an important bridge between the USA and the EU. The Summer School are planning to have the conference weekend between July 2021 and September 2021. This gives them enough time to plan and muster the necessary support. The launch of the Summer School has been welcome in many quarters as a very exciting-and timely-initiative.We know it is going to be a big challenge, but we all must step up to the plate to help with the recovery in Ireland and bring more people from all walks of life together to help strengthen relations between USA and Europe.
The first President of Tip O’Neill International Summer School-Mallow Committee is Michael O’ Neill and a relative Tip O’ Neil.
The Irish in Europe Association will act as promoters and the European Partners for the Summer School.
Persons of all nationalities are most welcome to join the different Summer School support groups in Ireland, USA and Europe as they are established by contacting Michael O’ Neill at
