McDonald welcomes appointment of US Ambassador Crawford to Ireland
Speaking following Senate approval of the appointment of Mr Edward Crawford as the new US Ambassador to Ireland, Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald TD said:
“I would like to congratulate Mr Crawford in securing the approval of the US senate.
“Ireland’s connection with the US is greater than diplomacy; it is a bond of kinship and one that Ambassador Crawford fully understands.
“I look forward to meeting with the new Ambassador to discuss maintaining our strong economic, cultural, and social links and the continued role of the United States in the peace process. That help and encouragement is important in securing the implementation of the Good Friday Agreement.”
