Note: this biography may be incomplete or out of date. Extension/update suggestions are welcome.

From Connecticut, Patrick O'Connor also has Irish nationality by descent. Now living in Harlem (NYC), he managed humanitarian aid programs for 11 years in Africa and the Middle East, including three years in the Gaza Strip. He has also volunteered with the International Solidarity Movement in the West Bank, supporting non-violent Palestinian protest against the Wall.

In early February 2005, he was detained at Maasiyahu prison in Ramle awaiting deportation by the Israeli authorities. In late February, it was reported that he had been freed from prison in Israel and had returned home. Apparently, as part of this deal whereby he agreed to leave Palestine, the Israeli Government agreed to conduct a hearing to determine whether he may return. Apparently, also, Patrick Hennessy, the Irish Ambassador to Israel, Michael D. Higgins, T.D. and L editor, Ciarn Pronntaigh, were helpful in negotiating this outcome.

He managed humanitarian aid programs for 11 years in Africa and the Middle East, including three years in the Gaza Strip.
