The National Irish Freedom Committee (NIFC)
will engage in cultural related activities for the purpose of providing a
medium to raise the cultural and historical level of awareness amongst those
of Irish heritage to ensure that our cultural heritage, values, and Fenian
traditions are preserved for future generations of Irish-Americans.
Down through the centuries Ireland has produced some of the world's greatest
scholars, writers, poets, and artists. Because of prejudice and intolerance
many of these talented individuals left Ireland to practice their art
elsewhere. Many others who left Ireland because of political activism,
famine or lack of opportunity became in their own right renowned statesmen,
politicians, judges, doctors, businessmen and women in their adopted
countries. All of these individuals make us proud of our Irish roots and we
cherish their contributions to our proud heritage.
The NIFC will support other Irish-American organizations engaged in
promoting our cultural heritage. In addition, the NIFC will pursue its own
initiative to raise the level of awareness of Irelands' struggle for its
independence in a reunited sovereign nation free to determine and charter
its own destiny.

level of awareness amongst those of Irish heritage to ensure that our
cultural heritage, values, and Fenian traditions are preserved for future
generations of Irish-Americans.
