I got to meet with the President yesterday and I wanted to share with you this drawing that I presented him with. It’s a pencil drawing of the president in front of his ancestral home and the White House. It was by Brian Fogarty a school teacher from Co Tipperary now living in Galway.
Thank you Henry – love that drawing, it’s beautiful.
(I asked Henry if his head hurt today, he said “it’s coming ’round” – so, good news!)
