St Patrick's Day invite is sign of hope and eggs put in the wrong basket
IT WAS a good and timely sign that President-elect Trump extended the St Patrick's Day invitation.
The occasion is not about back-slapping 'Paddywhackery'. It is hard- won, valuable access to the most powerful political machine on the planet, and it reminds Washington of the still considerable Irish-origin community in the US.
The early call between President-elect Trump and the Taoiseach was of itself a positive sign.
