Congressman Higgins Joins President Biden During Trip to Ireland
Buffalo, NY, April 13, 2023
Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-26) is currently in Ireland, joining President Biden, Cabinet leaders, and members of Congress for meetings with Irish leaders.
Higgins is among several members of the Congressional Friends of Ireland Caucus, who were asked to join the President on the trip.
The visit coincides with 25th anniversary of the 1998 Good Friday agreement, which provided a blueprint for peace in Northern Ireland after 700 years of armed conflict. In 2006 during his tenure on the House of Representatives Government Reform Subcommittee on National Security, Emerging Threats and International Relations, Congressman Higgins visited Ireland and met with Sinn Fein leaders during a critical time in the peace process.
