As Taoiseach, I welcome the opportunity to send my warmest wishes to the Irish
diaspora celebrating St. Patrick's Day around the world. I am honoured to
represent my country on this special day, the day that celebrates the best of
St .Patrick's Day is an important day for Irish people and people of Irish
descent all over the world. It is a great opportunity to celebrate who we are
and to show the world that, although we are a small country, we are rightly
proud of our heritage. And we are happy to share our unique heritage and culture
with other nations, keeping alive the cultural traditions for future generations
This year, more than ever, we think of all members of our extended global family
and friends, and strive to reinforce those relationships that are so important
to us, and to the future of Ireland.
We know that our people are our strength, and we will continue to show the world
the strength and resilience of the Irish people. We continue to show the world
that Ireland and its people have much to offer. And we will strive to work
together to overcome the challenges we face, and to ensure a peaceful and
prosperous future for our people and generations to come.
A very happy and enjoyable St. Patrick's Day to you all. Lá Fhéile Pádraig sona
daoibh go léir.
Enda Kenny TD
