According to the Department of Foreign Affairs, Irish communities worldwide have enthusiastically embraced its global St. Brigid’s Day events program, celebrating Irish women’s creativity and talent. Since the launch in 2018, as of 2021, over 30 cities across the globe participate.

Here in New York, the IBO-NY’s special guest is New York-born Irish designer Jennifer Rothwell — zooming in from Ireland to visit one of her favorite Irish diaspora groups. Many IBO members are devoted fans of Jennifer’s work, which include bow ties and scarves, bomber jackets, kimonos and leggings, and most recently, a collection of silk face masks. We’ll discuss Jennifer’s design inspirations, her St. Brigid line of silks, and how she moved quickly from gowns to masks to meet the new market’s demands in the new Covid world. Her reusable (machine) washable masks are printed and made in Ireland.

Fiddler Caitlin Finley zoomed in from Maine to share her work that is greatly influenced by the music of the Sligo fiddlers who recorded in New York in the 1920s and 30s.
