On behalf of the United States government, I would like to wish the people of Ireland a very happy St. Patrick’s Day.
Millions of Americans will celebrate this beloved holiday, which has come to symbolize the long-lasting friendship, ancestral bonds, and shared values between our two nations. We also take this day to recognize the formative Irish values that make our nations great – freedom, a strong work ethic, and a love of family.
The close partnership between the United States and Ireland has helped advance our mutual security and economic interests, and we will continue to build on this partnership to keep our citizens safe, ensure robust economic growth on both sides of the Atlantic, and build on the already deep people-to-people ties between our great nations.
As communities across our two countries celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, I offer warm wishes for a safe and happy holiday. Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhuit.
