Hauppauge, NY, March 26th, 2019: On Tuesday, March 26th, Representatives from the McGuiness Principles held a press conference advocating for the adoption of the McGuiness Principles throughout Long Island and across the globe.
Many Suffolk County Legislators gathered with local Irish-American associations for a press conference pledging support for the McGuiness Principles on Tuesday, March 26th. Legislator McCaffrey had the honor of speaking during the conference, in which he advocated for the adoption of the McGuiness Principles across Island, as well as the implementation of their values here in the United States.
Of Irish decent himself, Legislator McCaffrey took great pride in standing alongside his fellow Irish-Americans in encouraging unity between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Among the Principles are the core four: Equality, Respect, Truth, and Self-Determination.
