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.
