Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan issued a statement Saturday afternoon recognizing Ireland’s "remarkable contributions to the United States" and the strong relationship between the two countries.


"Throughout American history, men and women of Irish descent have had a deep and lasting impact on our country. Since our founding, these men and women have helped shape and strengthen America, including as signers of the Declaration of Independence, presidents, military leaders, authors, business titans, and much more," Sullivan wrote. "Irish fortitude, leadership, creativity, and entrepreneurship are woven into the very fabric of the United States."
