Trina Vargo, founder of the US-Ireland Alliance, said: “Aidan’s body of work is rich with a range of diverse and memorable roles that span television, theater and film. While his career his taken him to London, Los Angeles and beyond, he has remained loyal to working Ireland as well.”

The evening is equally known for introducing Irish musical talent and 2019 will be no exception with the Irish band VINCI set to perform.

Abrams will return as emcee, fresh from filming the next Star Wars movie.

In addition to talented honorees and incredible performances the night always includes a mix of guests that last year included Elon Musk, Diane Keaton, Colin Farrel and many more.
