Pres. Sirleaf Congratulates Ireland on Saint Patrick's Day

MONROVIA, March 17 (LINA) - President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has sent a message of congratulations to the Government and People of the Republic of Ireland on the occasion commemorating Saint Patrick's Day.

In her message to her Ireland counterpart Michael D. Higgins, President Sirleaf conveyed best wishes to the Government and People of Ireland, on behalf of the Government and People of the Republic of Liberia and in her own name.

Madam Johnson Sirleaf said as the people of Liberia join Ireland in celebrating this very significant day, both countries are reminded of the virtues of forgiveness and benevolence widely reflected in the life of Saint Patrick.

The Liberian leader further noted that the vibrant partnership of mutual benefits subsisting between both countries continue to grow from strength to strength, especially during Liberia's post-war reconstruction period.

According to a Foreign Ministry release issued Tuesday, President Sirleaf also expressed immense appreciation for the Irish support to the fight against Ebola to which the Irish Government has committed in direct funding of roughly €17 million to institutions working on the Ebola response in Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The Liberian President hoped that the Liberian-Irish relations will continue to enjoy ever stronger ties of friendship and cordiality as the two Governments together strive for the maintenance of global peace and security and for the respect of human dignity.
