18 March, 2009 - by Pat Sheehan

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP MLA yesterday attended the Speakers lunch as part of the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in Washington.   In conversation with President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden the Sinn Fein leader presented President Obama with a booklet of his election campaign and of his family especially made by children and young people in west Belfast.   Gerry Adams said:   “Two weeks ago I was asked to visit Saint Gerard’s Resource Centre in the heart of West Belfast. Saint Gerard’s is a wonderful school for children with special educational needs.   The pupils wanted me to bring a message from them to President Barack Obama. During President Obama’s election campaign the children, like many others, were inspired by the President’s message of hope and change.   They put together a booklet of drawings and paintings and words about the President and his family.   I was very pleased to be able to hand it over to President Obama.” CRÍOCH
