New CEO joins Irish Community Care Manchester
Irish Community Care Manchester is pleased to be able to welcome Patrick Morrison to the team as our new Chief Executive Officer. Patrick, who was born in Liverpool to Irish parents, has over 17 years' experience working in the Irish community and with Ireland’s Diaspora internationally. With a background in cultural and community work, Patrick is joining us from Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann and, is a former chair of Irish in Britain, so has an already established network and knowledge of the community which can only strengthen and grow ICCM as it continues in its mission of promoting care, culture and community.
Starting with ICCM Patrick said “I am looking forward to bringing my experiences of being Irish to ICC, and developing a deeper understanding of the needs and achievements of the Irish community across Manchester as together we continue building a thriving and resilient community across Manchester.”
Martin Connolly, Chair of Irish Community Care: “The board of trustees and staff are excited to welcome Patrick to the role with his experience and leadership, as we embark on this new chapter for ICCM.”
As we prepare to celebrate St Patrick’s day this year, you may see Patrick and members of the team out and about at various Irish events across the city so please do make contact and say hello while enjoying the festivities.
