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.
Finally in the evening, the president, first lady, and VP will host PM Enda Kenny at a St Patrick’s Day reception in the East Room.
Jay Carney, hopefully in a green tie, will brief at 12:30.
