    By Noreen Bowden | May 26, 2009

    The Irish Immigration Center is celebrating its twentieth anniversary as a provider of services to the immigrant community in Boston – marking the occasion with a dinner attended by President Mary McAleese.

    The organisation was started in 1989 by a group of Irish immigrants; at the time, there were thousands of undocumented in the city. The organisation today serves immigrants from 100 countries every year and offers not only help with immigration and citizenship queries, but also runs substance abuse and counselling programmes, preventive health care programmes, English as a Second Language classes, and exchange programmes between the United States and Ireland.

    The Solas dinner will be held on 27 May at the Copley Hotel; the organisation will honour President Mary McAleese with the Solas Award at the event.
