I only had to move to the otherside of the world to meet the President of Ireland, Michael D Higgins and his wife, Sabina! Thank you to the Irish Consulate for inviting me to the special occasion at UWA and to @rich_t_matias for a such wonderful photograph. .
Michael D Higgins is such an amazing man and gave such a moving speech. He reminded me that even though I miss home, I'm doing something exceptionally Irish. I'm now part of the great Irish tradition of the Diospora, the Irish emigrants, the centuries of men and women who have gone out into the world as embassadors of our little nation, adding what we can to the global community, with nearly ten times as many Irish citizens now living outside of Ireland as inside Ireland. But no matter how far away we may end up ... Níl aon tinteán mar do thinteán féin ☘️🇮🇪🍀
