We won’t forget…

US Special envoy, Paula Dobriansky was this week on her farewell tour to Northern Ireland.
She promised that when President George W Bush steps aside for Barack Obama, Washington will continue to be committed to ‘wee Norn Iron’.

Ms Dobriansky said the US has always had a great interest in Northern Ireland and the positivity was pouring as she said that despite the global economic downturn Northern Ireland had a lot to offer.

While some might question whether Obama will have any time after his inauguration on 20 January to remember Northern Ireland faced, as he is, with the chaos surrounding Gaza, Ms Dobriansky said that the Northern Ireland experience could be applied…well at least our politicians only fire words at each other.
