Author: Notre Dame News

The close connection between the University of Notre Dame and Ireland was proudly represented when the "Fighting Irish played Navy": on the football field in Dublin in September 2012. Notre Dame's president, John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., and Enda Kenny, prime minister - or taoiseach - of Ireland, join together in encouraging Irish-Americans to carry on the spirit of collaboration to celebrate their Irish roots in a meaningful way.
