THE GRIN ON his face says it all: Taoiseach Enda Kenny gives two thumbs up to ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange this morning.

The event was one of a number planned for him during his five-day trip to the United States this week.

This morning, he met with traders on the floor of the stock exchange before zooming off to another pressing engagement. Tomorrow, he will have a bilateral meeting with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office in the morning, and will also attend a breakfast hosted by US vice president Joe Biden in hs official residence.

In the afternoon, the Taoiseach will attend a St Patrick’s Day lunch hosted by the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Republican politician John Boehner, on Capitol Hill. Following that, he will go on to the White House for its belated Patrick’s Day evening reception.

The Taoiseach will return home to Ireland on Wednesday.
