THE Kildare County Board had it’s presence felt in New York on St Patrick’s Day when chairman John McMahon and commercial manager Marty McEvoy travelled to Yonkers as part of a delegation that included Mayor of Kildare Spike Nolan, writes Ruth O’Brien.
With the board in considerable debt, commercial manager and central council delegate Marty McEvoy said it was important the county board tap in to the Kildare community in America.
”Since becoming commercial manager I said I would tap in to the diaspora of the Kildare community oversees. It was an opportunity to network and build relationships. We met some great Kildare people and the trip was a great success. I see New York as an opportunity to get back on a sound footing,” McEvoy told the Leinster Leader this week.
