The Brexit maelstrom might be three thousand miles to the east, but it is the topic of hot discussion Thursday evening in two U.S. cities less than three hundred miles apart – New York and Washington. D.C.

In New York, Congressman Richard Neal, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee and the congressional Friends of Ireland, will lead a discussion on Brexit at an event hosted by the National Committee on American Foreign Policy.

The gathering, at the Union Club in Manhattan, is headlined as a George D. Schwab Foreign Policy Briefing.

Participants include Senator Chris Murphy from Connecticut, Representative Peter King from New York and the top Republican in the Friends of Ireland, Irish Ambassador to the United States Dan Mulhall, Andrew McCormick and Amanda Sloat.

The discussion will be moderated by Tom Wright of the Brookings Institute.

The evening, which includes a reception, is being presented by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies.
