Our goal is to ensure that all members and guests feel safe and comfortable at each and every Irish Chamber event. To that end, the Chamber will comply with federal, state and municipal Covid guidelines which are in effect at the location and the time of each event that we host. We will update our guidance/recommendations for each event we host.

At a minimum, we ask that all event attendees (regardless of vaccination status) wear a face mask during indoor events.

Thank you for your cooperation as we navigate constantly changing infection rates and local regulations. We appreciate your support so that we may continue with in-person programming at this time.

Dear Members and Friends, 

As pandemic conditions continue to evolve, we are closely following air travel restrictions like most of you. Reliable air travel is an operational cornerstone throughout the transatlantic corridor. Many of our members and regional partners’ businesses are influenced by seamless international connectivity. As we near the mid-point of 2021, the Philadelphia International Airport’s CEO Chellie Cameron reports a continued increase in air traffic as the vaccination efforts expand throughout the country.  However, the industry continues to face hurdles and Chellie and her team are committed to keeping the community current about what can be expected in the coming months at PHL.  

A second Air Service Town Hall will take place on May 12 from 2:30-4:00 pm EST.  Speakers will include Chellie, Stephanie Wear, Director of Air Service Development & Cargo Services at PHL and three representatives from American Airlines, PHL’s Hub carrier. Presenters will provide various updates relating to the current and future world of air service at PHL. The meeting will also include some follow up items for PHL to report back on to the group in subsequent meetings.

If you would like to join this exciting assembly, please reach out directly to Nicole Maddox at nicole.maddox@phl.org for more information, to register for the meeting, and obtain a calendar invitation and webinar link.


Despite a year of unprecedented challenges dealing with a worldwide pandemic and Brexit, IDA Ireland announced 246 new investments in Ireland in 2020 and the creation of 20,123 new jobs. The US accounted for 67% of these investments coming from companies based in North America – the highest number yet up from 63% in 2019.

“In the context of the Covid-19 global pandemic the FDI sector has shown huge resilience and its performance is remarkable,”  said Martin Shanahan, CEO, IDA Ireland.

The results, he said, “show the continued attractiveness of Ireland as a destination for companies seeking to invest”.
