Congratulations to the 2013 Claddagh Award Recipient: Moira Hastings Fuller

We are pleased to honor Moira Hastings Fuller as our 2013 Claddagh Award Recipient.  Moira, a native to the Emerald Isle, has been a Maine resident for years and has been a generous donor to the Maine Irish Heritage Center.  We thank Moira and her husband Bob Fuller for their support for our many needs, including this website and our new, soon to be installed, heating system.

The Claddagh Ceremony took place on Saturday November 16th at the Center.  After a poignant video on Moira’s life, we heard heartfelt sentiments from Moira’s friends and family before Moira herself spoke from the heart on her childhood in Ireland and her life here in the United States.  We were honored to present Moira with the 2013 award, a beautiful Beleek bowl.

We thank our donors and sponsors for making this year’s Claddagh a success.  To see this year’s program, please click on the program cover below.
