Clinton to address UCD students

Former US president Bill Clinton is to give a special address to students at University College Dublin tonight.

Mr Clinton, on a two day trip to Ireland, will also visit the Clinton Institute for American Studies, opened in 2003, and take part in a dedication ceremony.

About 200 invited students and guests will attend the former president’s address and question and answer session at the William Jefferson Clinton Auditorium.

Mr Clinton is expected to focus closely on current international issues while also giving his views on Irish-American relations.

Professor Liam Kennedy, from the Clinton Institute, will introduce the former president and chair the Q&A session.

Invitations were sent mainly to politics and American politics students and a small number of guests.

The Dublin leg of his visit follows Mr Clinton’s meeting with the North’s First Minister Peter Robinson and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness at the University of Ulster’s Magee College in Derry.

A dinner is also being hosted by Business and Finance magazine at UCD’s O’Reilly Hall with Mr Clinton as guest of honour.
