Did you know 22 US Presidents claim Irish roots?
Since March is upon us once again, and has been designated Irish American heritage month by the US President, I thought it might be a good time to share a little information about the links between Ireland and these US Presidents.

We all can be so proud to have the Irish blood that played such a major part in what makes America the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Love that the Irish James Hoban was the architect behind the White House!
As always, thank you and God bless you, Mairead*!

Hi Irishannie - The Irish truly have made great contributions to the USA, something we definitely can be very proud of. And the White House design is beautiful and a credit to Irishman James Hoban.
All the best,
