US philanthropist receives Tip O’Neill Award 01.07.15

US philanthropist Loretta Brennan Glucksman has been named the fourth recipient of the annual Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora Award for 2015.
The announcement was made at a special reception this afternoon at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel, Buncrana.
Ms Brennan Glucksman has been involved in philanthropic endeavours for more than two decades, focusing on education, the arts, healthcare and peace initiatives in both the US and Ireland - a passion she shared with her late husband Lew Glucksman.
Her grandfather, David Brennan, hailed from the fishing village of Greencastle and her grandmother was Alice Moore from Co Leitrim.
Ms Brennan Glucksman is the chairman emeritus of the American Ireland Fund (AIF) and is co-chair of Glucksman Ireland House, the centre for Irish Studies at New York University (NYU). She also serves on the NYU board of Arts and Sciences.
Tip O’Neill Irish Diaspora committee chairman Cllr Nicholas Crossan said: “Ms Loretta Brennan Glucksman’s resumé speaks for itself and it is a privilege to be in a position to honour her outstanding contributions not only to the United States but also to Ireland.”
She will be presented with her award at the Inishowen Gateway Hotel on Friday, September 25. Previous recipients of the award were Niall O’Dowd, Brian Schweitzer and Senator Therese Murray.
