John Murphy represented the Irish diaspora in the United States at the September 28th Plenary Meeting of the Irish national Constitutional Convention.

The constitutional convention is an official Irish government body established to debate potential changes to Ireland’s constitution. Its September plenary meeting discussed the issue of the right of the Irish diaspora to vote in Irish presidential elections.

Joining other Irish dispora representatives from France, Germany, Canada, Northern Ireland and Australia, John’s contribution underlined the importance of the contribution made by the diaspora over the years, and argued in favor of the right to vote as a means of strengthening ties between the Irish diaspora and the community at home.

John has been heavily involved in the Irish community in the United States for the last two decades. A current president of the Irish American Bar Association, John is also a founder of Irish Network-NYC and president of the Manhattan Gael’s Gaelic football association.
