Galway will be represented at the White House this St Patrick’s Day after US President Joe Biden invited the Mayor of Galway City to attend a celebration of Irishness on March 17.

Mayor Eddie Hoare will attend the traditional presentation of a bowl of shamrock by An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to President Biden.

The Fine Gael councillor hopes an opportunity will arise at the exclusive function to speak with Mr Biden.

“If I do meet him, I’d invite him to come to Galway when he is in Ireland again, to meet his Galway ancestors. And I’d thank America for its great investment in multinational companies and industries in Galway,” the Mayor told the Galway City Tribune from Shannon Airport.

He jetted off to Seattle on Wednesday, with Interim Chief Executive of the City Council, Patricia Philbin.

Mayor Hoare will be Grand Marshal of the St Patrick’s Day parade on Saturday, March 16 in Seattle, a sister city of Galway. He then flies to Washington to join An Taoiseach’s visiting delegation and dignitaries from Ireland.
