President Obama and the new US ambassador share an interest in Ireland

Ninety years ago this week, the United States became the very first country to open diplomatic relations with Ireland when Timothy Smiddy presented his credentials in Washington and ushered in a new era in US-Irish relations.

How fortunate I feel to take up my new role as US Ambassador to Ireland at this auspicious moment - and at a time when the relationship between our peoples and our governments holds such great promise. I am greatly honoured President Barack Obama asked me to represent the United States to a country I hold so dear.
