The president will honor the White House St. Paddy’s Day tradition of meeting with Ireland’s Prime Minister today. Their meeting is closed press, but the duo will deliver statements to the press in the late morning.

They then head to the US Capitol with VP O’Biden to attend a St. Patrick’s Day lunch.
