    Declan Keating Resume

    Dear Member,

    Trust you and your loved ones are keeping safe.

    I am pleased to advise that the Club has a new Committee Member and Treasurer, Professor Patrick McGorry A.O.  Professor McGorry, who was appointed at the recent Committee of Management Meeting, has an impressive list of achievements, and is currently Executive Director of Orygen and Professor of Youth Mental Health at Melbourne University.  I have attached a C.V. of Professor McGorry, which gives more details of his experience and considerable achievements. 

    I am sure that all Members will welcome Professor McGorry to the Committee at this exciting time for our Club.

    Celtic Club committee member Clare Murphy was in Dublin late last year, and was lucky enough to visit the Crosscare Migrant Project team office in Dublin last month and hear first-hand about their important work supporting migrants arriving or returning to Ireland. Crosscare’s latest report, Coming Home In Crisis, analyses issues common to returning Irish migrants which Celtic Club committee of management and members discussed in depth at last year’s Global Irish conference in Canberra and Melbourne. It’s great to see discussions around the country on how we can support returning migrants before they leave Australia, and you can learn more in the report online. Thanks to the Crosscare Migrant Project team for their kind hospitality of Irish community members from as far away as Melbourne!

    The President of the Celtic Club, Brian Shanahan OAM, has received a letter from the Irish Ambassador Breandan Ó Caollaí, to advise that a grant of $2,970 has been approved “to restore the Club’s founders picture and create a digital copy and print”. This was thanks to Mr. Ciaran Cannon T.D., the Minister of State for the Diaspora and International Development and Mr Simon Coveney T.D., the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade. The grant is made under the Government of Ireland Emigrant Support Programme ( ESP) and is to be used in the 19/20 financial year. 

    Brian Shanahan and the Committee are delighted that this important record of the Club’s history will be preserved and protected. The picture profiles the original founders of the Cluband the objects of the Club.
