It’s like coming home… Joe Biden expressed his love for Ireland and Louth; He will meet the President today

Louth: American President Joe Biden openly expressed his love for Ireland and Louth. Biden said that he felt as if he had come home. After visiting the town centre, US President Joe Biden relaxed at the Windsor Bar in Dundalk, Louth.

Today, President Micheal will meet with DD Higgins at the Arras a Uchtharain. He will also address the parliament later.

Biden said that his view is that the Irish are the only community in the world that sees the future with nostalgia. Everyone has a positive attitude. As a result, coming here feels like coming home. Joe Biden, who had arrived in Dublin earlier, was received by Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

Many relatives gathered at Windsor Bar to see and listen to the American President, including John Owen Finnegan and Andrea McKevitt, Biden’s cousins from Louth.

The ceremony began with Deputy Prime Minister Micheal Martin’s introduction. Martin recalled his last visit to Washington and being affected by COVID.

Biden said Louth always had a place in his mother’s heart. ‘It would have been a very proud moment for my mother, Catherine Eugenia Finnegan, to be able to witness this.’

Earlier, Biden also visited Carlingford Castle.

“The love and care shown by the people here every time I visit will never be forgotten.” It will always remain in my memory. That’s why I find myself returning here from time to time. Biden also recalled that his grandfather had advised him to maintain faith in Ireland even in the last drop of blood.

Biden recalled that his ancestors also left Ireland with Fulmoth Kearney of Moneygall, Offaly, President Barack Obama’s great-grandfather, who never dreamed that their grandchildren would become presidents of the United States. His sister, Valerie also accompanied Biden on the visit.

“I love you all,” Biden said to the crowd. TDs Labour’s Ged Nash, Sinn Féin’s Ruairí Ó Murchú and Independent TD Peter Fitzpatrick were also present at the event.

Biden started his visit to Dublin from Belfast. During his visit to Northern Ireland, the US President also met with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

In a keynote address at the University of Ulster in Belfast to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, Biden wished Northern Ireland a speedy restoration of popular rule.
