Foreign Pool Report - Taoiseach
Richard Latendresse • TVA Nouvelles
March 16, 2017: 11:44 AM

Large delegations from both U.S. and Republic of Ireland for a pool spray that lasted a total of a minute and a half.

Everybody was sporting splashy green, except President Trump, whose tie was more blue-ish. From a distance anyway.

The Irish delegation was facing VP Pence, secretary Ross and Reince Priebus on their couch.

Ambassador Anne Anderson was closest to Taoiseach Enda Kenny; by her side were Martin Fraser, secretary-general of the Irish government and Mark Kennelly, the Taoiseach's Chief of Staff.

Behind a large pool of Irish and American media, other members of the Irish delegation:

- Reece Smyth, chargé d'affaires at the Irish Embassy,

- Michael Lonergan, Deputy Head of mission,

- John Callinan, Assistant Secretary, department of Taoiseach

- Paul O'Brien, special adviser to the Taoiseach.

It was Taoiseach Enda Kenny's 7th visit to the White House.

He made a few comments, but your foreign pooler was too far to hear anything clearly.
