President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of congratulation to the Government and people of the Republic of Ireland on the occasion commemorating St. Patrick’s Day on March 17.


St. Patrick’s Day, or the Feast of St. Patrick, is a cultural and religious celebration held on March 17 each year, to commemorate the traditional date of the death of St. Patrick, the foremost patron saint of Ireland.


A Foreign Ministry release states that in the message to her Irish counterpart, His Excellency Mr. Michael D. Higgins, the Liberian leader conveyed, on behalf of the Government and people of Liberia and in her own name, warmest felicitations and sincere best wishes to him and through him to the Government and peace-loving people of Ireland.


“Having been privileged to renew our commitments to enhance and solidify our cooperation and friendship on March 10, 2017, when I received the Letters of Credence from your Ambassador to Liberia, Ms. Catherine Campbell, we reaffirmed our resolve to continue our collaboration in significant sectors including, health, gender and security,” President Sirleaf said in her message.


She assured Mr. Higgins of her unflinching support to both nations’ shared interests in the expansion of cordial ties between the two countries and peoples.


The Liberian leader wished her counterpart continued good health and happiness, and for the Government and people of Ireland, well-being and prosperity.
