“All candidates of both parties have been invited, with the committee having received acknowledgments from virtually every candidate and an expressed interest in participating in the forum,” a committee spokesman indicated.

“Due to the limited seating capacity of the auditorium where the forum will occur, a request for tickets does not guarantee a person will ultimately receive a ticket, but all interested individuals must apply to the email address.”

The committee members are former Congressman Joe Crowley, attorney Marty Glennon and attorney and former New York State Assemblyman John Dearie.

Among the Irish American Agenda topics for each candidate to address include Brexit, immigration, U.S. trade with the United Kingdom, the appointment of an U.S Special Envoy and the McGuinness Principles.
