Join us for an enjoyable evening with delicious food, lively entertainment and great company! We are delighted to honor Rev. and Mrs. Harold Good of Belfast, Northern Ireland. Rev. Good has served as the President of the Methodist Church in Ireland (for the entire island) and has received many awards recognizing his contributions to peace around the world. The Goods also have played a significant role as mentors to our students on the Flynn Center for Irish Studies’ study abroad program in Northern Ireland.

Help us raise scholarships to enable our students to enroll in Irish Studies courses at UST as well as to study abroad in Ireland and Northern Ireland.  Through the funds raised by the Gala, we also raise scholarships to bring Irish and Northern Irish students to study at UST.
