Brian McGlinchey, an accomplished government affairs professional, will be appointed as Ireland’s Honorary Consul to the State of Delaware in a ceremony in Wilmington Friday, in an historic first, underlining growing Ireland-Delaware bonds.
The decision to appoint McGlinchey as Ireland’s first ever honorary consul to Delaware was made by Ireland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Simon Coveney in recognition of McGlinchey’s qualifications, experience and engagement with Irish issues. It also underlines the strength of Delaware’s vibrant Irish community and the growing political, business and cultural links between Ireland and the Diamond State. More than 14% of Delaware’s inhabitants claim Irish heritage, but that number rises to more than 45% among New Castle County’s 180,000 residents.
McGlinchey was prominently involved in Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, serving as national fundraising co-chair, co-chair of the home state ‘Delaware for Joe’, and co-chair of ‘Irish Americans for Biden’. He has almost a quarter of a century of experience in federal, state, and local affairs in the mid-Atlantic. He is currently senior advisor at law firm McCarter & English*.
Prior to his roles in the 2020 presidential campaign, Mr McGlinchey served as the projects director for then-Sen. Biden. He also spent time as director of the Laborers – Employers Cooperation and Education Trust, a progressive labor-management fund, where he forged economic policies that promoted growth in the construction industry in the eastern region.
He is the past-president and founding member of Delawareans For Economic and Environmental Development (DEED), a coalition of labor, civic, environmental, and business leaders which champion balanced policies that expand the tax base and create private sector jobs while enhancing and protecting the environment.
Once opened, the honorary consul’s office in Wilmington will support Ireland’s Embassy in Washington, D.C., and Consulate General in New York in facilitating business and official visits from Ireland, providing information on Ireland and consular guidance and assistance to Irish citizens in Delaware.
