Hillary Rodham Clinton was inducted in to the Irish American Hall of Fame this afternoon at a ceremony in New York. In a brief speech, Clinton recalled President Bill Clinton’s work to improve US relations with Ireland during his presidency, and she recalled how, in 1994, he granted a visa to Irish nationalist Gerry Adams. The decision was controversial at the time, and Clinton said that “Absent that first step, that first risk, we might not have had the momentum to move forward and get to the Good Friday accords and all that has followed.”
