Taoiseach to march in Chicago's St Patrick's parade

Share this article


The Taoiseach will march in the Chicago St. Patrick's parade later today, as his US series of engagements comes to a close.

He spent last night discussing the plight of the undocumented Irish in America.

His series of engagements begins this morning with mass in Old St. Patrick’s Church.

The plight of the undocumented Irish and immigration reform has formed a key part of the Taoiseach's visit.

Last night he met emigrant support groups funded by the Irish government.

They discussed the E3 Visa, which the government hopes will be available for Irish citizens soon.

But that won't solve the problem of the undocumented Irish living here for years.

That's something the Taoiseach says will require much more comprehensive reform.
