Belfast International Homecoming 2020

Well that is ‘Dead on!’

Eugene Mullan has been appointed as a Belfast International Homecoming 2020 Ambassador. This recognises the work he has done on behalf of Causeway – Ireland Scotland Exchange as a friend and advocate for Belfast.

The seventh annual Belfast International Homecoming – the largest gathering of the diaspora in the north of Ireland – is taking place Virtually on 1st & 2nd October 2020. The purpose is to welcome back the global family, to join in the discussion about building a better Belfast. The conference will reconnect Belfast with its far-flung diaspora to replace the loneliness of lockdown with the warm and virtual embrace of friendship. This year’s Homecoming will showcase ten inspirational leaders who have pivoted through the pandemic to come up with innovative ways of moving the community forward.

Eugene was born and raised in Belfast, studied architecture at Queens University. He regularly visits Belfast and N Ireland to see family and friends. He will receive his medal at an on-line ceremony on Friday 02 October as the closing session of the conference. Along with many of the other Ambassadors he is disappointed that he will not be attending the usual lavish banquet in Belfast City Hall. However, he is looking forward to toasting his fellow Ambassadors with a dram of Dead Rabbit Whiskey at the end of the event.
