U.S. President Joe Biden visited Ireland for a few days in April 2023. The trip spanned the island of Ireland from Belfast to Dundalk, to Dublin and on to Mayo. A number of alumni were in attendance at several of the events and some got the chance to meet the President. If you have further stories of meeting with the Presidential motorcade, attending speeches or dinners or cheering on the streets, please do let us know!
