Joe Biden's Visit 25th June 2016

23 June 2016

As most of us know by now Mr Joe Biden (Current Vice President of the USA) is visiting Ireland this week. As part of his visit Joe is visiting Cooley on Saturday 25th of June. Namely Kilwirra graveyard, Carlingford and Lily Finnegans pub in Whitestown. Joe claims irish roots here in Cooley through his Mother who was a Finnegan, originally from Cooley.

His father's side of the family hail from Mayo.

A visit will be made to Kilwirra graveyard which is located beside our Glasshouses here in Willville as can be seen here. Distant relations are believed to be interned here. Interestingly Joe is also related to our other neighbours, Rob and Dave Kearney, Cooleys resident Rugby International players! It is believed at least one of the brothers will be on hand to welcome Joe home!

If you wish to learn more about Joe, there is loads of information on his Wikipedia page or on the Visit Carlingford website!

We will be open all weekend as usual and welcome all American visitors!
