ANTEQUE, N.Y. — Nancy E. Sirota, a retired teacher who spent her childhood in northern New York, said Thursday that she and her daughter were invited to celebrate independence day in Mexico City, which is also celebrating the nation’s independence day.
The Sirotas are the first Irish-Americans to celebrate the holiday.
“The two countries decided that it’s not just a celebration for the Irish people but that we want to have a conversation,” Ms. Sirella said in an interview.
The decision to bring the two countries together in celebration comes as the U.S. is pushing its allies to come together in support of a new peace plan.
“It’s really important that we bring these two nations together because they are so different and so different nations, and they have so much in common,” said David E. Wartenberg, the U and Ireland’s deputy assistant secretary of state for South and Central Asia.
“They have a lot of common history, and the way we see them today, they are like the two nations of Europe.
So, we are trying to help them be one nation and be able to work together, as opposed to being separated.”
The two nations, which are both located in what is now the former Soviet Union, are the only two former Communist bloc nations that remain in NATO, the alliance of the 28 member states.
Mr. Wartsenberg said he hopes the two can find a way to cooperate more in the fight against ISIS and other threats.
Ms. Sirica, a native of Ireland, is the director of the Center for Social Innovation at the New School.
She and her family moved to Mexico in the 1970s.
She said she has been working on her plans for a new celebration since the start of this year.
She said she and a few other Irish Americans are planning to have three separate events for the two-day celebration, but the main event is still planned for the beginning of next month.
The Irish community in Mexico is one of the largest in the Americas, with a population of more than 1.4 million. “
It’s important to us that we have the unity of the country and the unity between the two peoples, as well as the Irish and the Mexicans, as they celebrate their independence day.”
The Irish community in Mexico is one of the largest in the Americas, with a population of more than 1.4 million.
Sirota said she hopes the Irish community can work together to achieve a common goal, which she said is for a stronger U.N. and NATO.
Mexico and the U of T both have Irish American communities in their campuses, and Ms. Wartenberg said the two universities are working to ensure that the Irish American community can live in peace and prosperity.
President Donald Trump, who has been vocal about his desire for greater ties between the U, Ireland and Mexico, is scheduled to visit Mexico on Thursday.
