New Irish president Michael D Higgins will visit US in May
New Irish president Michael D. Higgins will come to America on his first official visit in May IrishCentral has learned.
Higgins will be guest of honor at the American Ireland Fund dinner held in New York which annually raises millions for worthy Irish charities.
The 70-year-old president took office in December and has proven extremely popular to date. He was mobbed by students at the annual Young Scientist of the Year award last week and has sky high approval ratings.
Higgins visited the Irish Center in London during his presidential visit there and has promised to make Irish emigrants abroad a major concern of his presidency.
While not well known in America, Higgins did take a master’s degree at Indiana University in 1967.
