Irish National Caucus

Working for justice and praying for peace in Ireland... WELCOME TO THE IRISH NATIONAL CAUCUS BLOG Ceade Mile Failte -- hundred thousand welcomes! We believe the U.S. has a vital role to play by applying a single -- not a double-standard in its foreign policies towards human rights in Ireland. In particular, we believe the U.S. must not subsidize anti-Catholic discrimination in Northern Ireland. That is why the Irish National Caucus in 1984 initiated the MacBride Principles.

CAPITOL HILL. Wednesday, March 6, 2013 --- If silence is, indeed, consent, then a major New Jersey law firm, that  specializes in employment law, is complicit in insulting the Mac Bride Principles and the Holy Land Principles. The Mac Bride Principles -- a corporate code of conduct for American companies doing business in Northern Ireland --- were passed into NJ state law in July 1987. Their offspring, the Holy Land Principles -- a corporate code of conduct for American companies doing business the the Holy land -- were launched on International Human Rights Day,December 10, 2013.
Fr. Sean Mc Manus,  who launched both the Mac Bride Principles and the Holy land Principles, explained : " Some of our Press Releases had gone to Mr. Peter Mueller, a partner Hardwood Lloyd. He responded with a disrespectful,bigoted and foul-mouthed email : “"Stop sending me this c- - p." ( Full email below, in previous Press Release). I then sent a Press Release ( below) to all the attorneys and partners in Hardwood Lloyd-- giving them the opportunity to disassociate themselves and their firm from the unprofessional and unethical conduct of Mr. Mueller. Yet, amazingly, after almost a week,  Hardwood Lloyd has remained silent -- and, therefore, complicit."


CAPITOL HILL. Thursday, February 28, 2013 – It is instructive how -the Holy Land Principles – a corporate code of conduct for American companies doing business in The Holy Land – has evoked hostility and obscenity from some folk.
Fr. Sean Mc Manus, president of both the Irish National Caucus and Holy Land Principles asked: “How can fair employment, of all things, evoke such reaction. It is even more shocking when it comes from a Law Firm, specializing in “ employment law”, according to its own Web Site.
This is how attorney PETER E. MUELLER, Partner, in Hardwood Lloyd -- 130 Main Street, P.O. Box 1788, Hackensack, NJ 07601
TEL 201.487.1080, FAX 201.487.4758 --- responded to fair employment in the Holy Land: “"Stop sending me this c- - p." (Full obscene email below, with Mr. Mueller’s email address and telephone number and photo).

Why should a Law Firm in heavily Irish-American New Jersey react with such unprofessionalism towards the Mac Bride Principles that the State of New Jersey passed into law? (The Holy Land Principles are the same as the Mac Bride Principles, and you cannot show contempt for  one without the other). Why should eminently fair and just employment principles be disrespected by a Law Firm specializing in employment law? What is going on here? Has Harwood Lloyd been retained to lobby against the Holy Land Principles just like  law firms were hired to oppose the Mac Bride Principles in New Jersey?”
