Kevin O'Malley testified before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations this week about becoming the U.S. Ambassador to Ireland. It was part of a full day of hearings at the Capitol.
Here is Mr. O'Malley's full testimony.
O'Malley said, "Ireland is one of our most reliable allies and stable trading partners," adding that "Trade and investment ties between the United States and Ireland will be furthered strengthened if we can reach agreement on an ambitious Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership."
President Obama nominated O'Malley on June 5, 2014 to replace former U.S. Ambassador Dan Rooney, who retired in December 2012.
The U.S. Embassy in Ireland is located at 42 Elgin Road in Dublin's Ballsbridge neighborhood. Find current activities on Facebook.
