Another St Patrick’s Day – another US sham
• Today we will once again see our elected leader celebrating St Patrick's Day by travelling to another country to give a present to its leader.
US President Barack Obama couldn't even meet the Taoiseach on March 17 to accept the 'traditional' bowl of shamrock. Enda Kenny had to wait around for a few days before being granted an audience with him.
The shamrock will be thrown in the bin after the ceremony.
