IPOY 2019 Geraldine Browne

Date: Sun, Mar 3rd, 2019


We are pleased to continue our long partnership with this community event.

Please see below from IPOY Chairperson Cormac Monaghan:

The Irish Person of the Year committee is delighted to announce that Tipperary's Geraldine Browne has been chosen as the 2019 honouree. Geraldine has been to the fore of many Irish cultural and community events in recent years, most notably the Toronto Irish Players where she currently serves as President. In addition to the Players, other organisations and activities to benefit from her hard work, leadership, personal warmth, legendary baking and all-round hospitality include the Irish Cultural Society of Toronto, the Rose of Tralee, the annual Mass of Memory, Open Door Ceilidhs, Set Dancing and many more - since arriving in Canada 27 years ago, Geraldine has rolled up her sleeves and got involved wherever she could. Aside from her obvious contribution to the health of Irish Culture here in Toronto, Geraldine has also been a great support to many recent arrivals seeking to find their way in the Big Smoke. Her caring and down to earth nature helping many new arrivals (and not so new) to feel more at home here, far away from home! This is the 29th year of the IPOY award and Geraldine joins a distinguished list of individuals or community groups who have been recognised for either their own personal accomplishments or their work in the Irish Canadian community. Geraldine is a very deserving recipient of this award and will be honoured at the annual IPOY lunch on Sunday March 3rd, at the Toronto Hilton Hotel.
