Mulgrew honored

Star of “Star Trek: Voyager” and “Orange is the New Black” and author of two memoirs Kate Mulgrew pictured last night, top right, after she accepted the Eugene O’Neill Lifetime Achievement Award from the Irish American Writers and Artists. Toasting the recipient were IAW&A President Maria Deasy, Vice-president Brendan Costello Jr., Sarah Fearon and Frances Mulraney, who together hosted a laidback virtual program of tributes to Mulgrew with musical interludes. Last year’s recipient Peter Quinn vowed that everyone will meet up again in person at Rosie O’Grady’s in Manhattan in 2021.
