Over the past week we have had a number of important heads of state visit Ireland. I didn’t agree with many of the opinions voiced by Irish journalists and have reframed from making many comments in relation to the raft of observations they made. I won’t comment here yet either. However, I wanted to give you a few links to some of the more important speeches that have been made. Some are good. Some are rubbish. Decide for your self.

Enda kenny’s speech introducing the president of the united states in College green, Dublin on Monday the 23rd of May 2011.

President Barack Obama’s speech.

A speech in Dublin castle by Mary McAleese President of Ireland introducing the queen of England on Wednesday the 18th of May 2011.

The queen of englands speech in Dublin castle.

I still haven’t made up my mind as to if I should write my opinions in relation to everything that has gone on in the past week . More deliberation is required.
