American Irish Fund: Irish PM Touts ‘Celtic Comeback’
As per a Washington St. Patrick’s Day tradition, Irish Prime Minister (An Taoiseach) Edna Kenny was in town to meet President Barack Obama and others, especially those of Irish descent. The American Irish Fund met March 18 at the National Building Museum to honor Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., Sen. Patrick Toomey, R-Pa., U.S. Ambassador to Ireland Daniel Rooney and Irish Ambassador Michael Collins. Before a performance by flautist James Galway, Kenny touted a “celtic comeback” for Ireland.
