Mahoning County Commissioner John McNally IV and his father, John McNally III, dined with President Barack Obama and Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny and their respective spouses at a White House dinner tonight.
The dinner comes three days after St. Patrick’s Day, but the Irish holiday was the focus of the invitation-only event.
It was Kenny’s last official event during his five-day visit to the United States.
“We [were] both very excited to be invited and to go,” the younger McNally said.
The two attorneys drove together Tuesday from Youngstown, where they both live, to Washington, D.C., for the dinner.
It was the first time either had been invited to the White House. Both are unsure why they were invited.
