Hunter Biden Joins Father’s Ireland Trip

First son Hunter Biden joined his father, President Joe Biden, on a state trip to Ireland that will mark the anniversary of a historic peace agreement between Republican separatists and British loyalists in the island’s northern polity.

The Good Friday Agreement, signed in 1998, came into effect after the people of Northern Ireland, a constituent nation of the United Kingdom, approved its terms in a referendum. It effectively ended a period of intense ethno-nationalist turmoil in the region known as The Troubles.

The Biden family is Irish Catholic, a point of pride for the president, and their appearance in the region will mark the 25th anniversary of the peace accord. The Bidens intend to visit both Northern Ireland and the Republic in the island’s southern portion, according to the Washington Times. Read more…
