Taoiseach Micheál Martin has welcomed Joe Biden’s win in the US Presidential elections over the weekend, expressing his pride of the fact Biden has Irish heritage.

“I offer warmest congratulations to Joe Biden on his election as the 46th President of the United States,” Martin said over the weekend.

“Ireland takes pride in Joe Biden’s election, just as we are proud of all the generations of Irish women and Irish men and their ancestors whose toil and genius have enriched the diversity that powers America,” the prime minister added.

There is speculation that Europe could be towards the top of the list for Biden’s first foreign visit, and if so, Dublin and the Martin government would be likely candidates for his first official engagement. (Samuel Stolton | EURACTIV.com)
