US Welcomes Enda Kenny

“It’s a great honor to welcome you all here as we celebrate St. Patrick’s Day yet again today,” said The Ambassdor of Ireland Michael Collins referring to the week long celebration that has taken place around town from the National Building Museum to The White House.

“It’s celebrated not only by the Irish, but it’s celebrated by nearly everybody else in the world.” We’ll drink to that – in fact we did at the Park Hyatt where Michael and Marie Collins welcomed The Prime Minister and The Deputy Prime Minister.

“Enda Kenny was first elected to the Irish Parliment many many years ago,” said Collins. In fact, he’s the longest serving member of the Irish Parliment having been elected in 1975. Please give a warm Washington welcome, a warm Irish welcome to Taoiseach Kenny.”
