25th Anniversary Manhattan Ambassador
We are happy to have Zach Corish represent us as our 25th Anniversary Manhattan Ambassador. Zach grew up in Wexford but was born in California and lived there for a few years as a child. He returned to the states five years ago and now calls Brooklyn home. Since moving to New York, Zach has been impressed by how willing everyone is to go out of their way to help others. Being a part of the NY Irish community means a lot to him and has allowed him to connect with great people.
After receiving such a warm welcome himself, Zach is eager to bring others into the fold. As the co-chair of Irish Network NYC, a leading network of young professionals, he fosters connections among Irish nationals, Irish-Americans, and Friends of Ireland. If you are new to the city or looking to make connections, he encourages you to come to one of their events! You can keep up with them by following @irishnetworknyc on Instagram and visiting www.in-nyc.clubexpress.com.
Zach and the Irish Network have admired all the work The Aisling Center does for the community and hope they continue to do this for another 25 years. He says, He says, “The Aisling Center is a very welcoming place. The minute you walk in the building or talk to any of the staff, you immediately understand and see the great work that is being done.”
Zach himself loves to keep active and enjoys running, playing sports, and pool. He also recognizes how important physical fitness is for overall well-being and is excited about the 6 Weeks to 6K Challenge. He hopes that all will join him to support a good cause and wishes the best of luck to all participants! Be sure to join Zach and Shelly Hackett for our 6K Run in Central Park
