Boston College Peace Dinner
25 Year Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement 

Boston, 29th March 2023

Ireland Gateway To Europe and The Boston College Ireland Business Council hosted the Boston College Peace Dinner on March 29th 2023 at the BC Club in downtown Boston. This very special event was held to commemorate the 25 year anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement and to celebrate Senator George Mitchell’s distinguished contribution to the peace process in Northern Ireland where he was awarded the Irish Institute Leadership Award.


This special dinner benefited our charity partner, the Irish American Partnership, with all proceeds being  used for the Integrated Education Fund in Northern Ireland. This programme aims to bring renewed funding and focus to the Good Friday Agreement pledge to “facilitate and encourage integrated education.” We believe that this dinner will serve as means to commemorate the Good Friday Agreement while shining a light on the on-going challenge of early-stage integration to a community of business leaders who can influence integrated education positively for generations to come.
