Céad Míle Fáilte – One Hundred Thousand Welcomes
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, we thought we would raise up everything we could find that is Irish.
A great place to start would be the Irish-American lobby – the Irish National Caucus website. They have a blog, too, so you can keep up on government relations news of Irish-American interest. The big news item right now is the U.S. Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe will be holding a congressional hearing on Northern Ireland: “Northern Ireland: Why Justice in Individual Cases Matters”.
Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny is in Washington today for the St. Patrick’s Day festivities and will be meeting with both Vice President Joe Biden and President Barack Obama.
