"I've been invited here. I think it's a real opportunity to continue to express the solidarity that we have with Irish America."

The Prime Minister stood firm on his decision to march saying, “This is Ireland’s day all over the world and not just in New York or America, but all over the world. March 17th is Ireland’s Day.”

Although St. Patrick’s Day celebrations have been controversial this year, there was no doubting what it means to be Irish in New York as thousands of people lined Fifth Avenue in freezing temperatures to celebrate their Irish identity.
