Visit of Tánaiste Micheál Martin TD to Armagh
At the Cathedral, the Tánaiste had the opportunity to visit the burial place of Brian Boru, High King of Ireland, and to see the various monuments and memorials relating to former Archbishops.
Prior to the Cathedral visit the Tánaiste met with representatives of both Armagh Robinson Library and the Cardinal Tomas Ó Fiaich Library and Archive. Both institutions are currently being supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs Reconciliation Fund in a project to preserve and curate the papers of former Church of Ireland Primate, the Right Revd the Lord Eames OM, and of the late Cardinal Tomas Ó Fiaich. As the Tánaiste commented in his keynote speech in the Library, ‘Each played instrumental roles in the process of peace and reconciliation.’
