NEW YORK— Denis J. Halliday, an Irish national and the former United Nations’ humanitarian coordinator in Iraq, will discuss the impact of the war in Iraq on Irish and American relations during a presentation at Fordham University. Halliday served as humanitarian coordinator in Iraq from September 1997 to September 1998.

Sponsored by Fordham’s Institute of Irish Studies, the event will take place on Friday, Jan. 28, at 6 p.m. in the McNally Amphitheatre, Fordham Law School, 140 W. 62nd St.

Ireland and America have traditionally enjoyed a strong relationship. However, many Irish citizens oppose the war, and last summer during President George Bush’s visit to Ireland, thousands of protestors took to the streets in Dublin.
