“Speeches were made by Vice President Mike Pence followed by President Trump,” Dee reports, “with the final words from An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who gave a poignant speech about the bond between Ireland and the USA, how the Irish people have made their contribution in the USA, and how much we value the Irish –American relationship.IMG_1545

“It truly was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I will treasure for a very long time. I also would love to say a very special thank you to United Airlines who kindly sponsored my ticket to Washington. Being a non-profit organisation, this means a lot to us.”
