Modi meets Irish counterpart

Dublin: Prime Minister Narendra Modi met Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in Dublin on Wednesday.

PM Modi presented reproductions of selected manuscripts and papers from the National Archives of India to Kenny.

Modi also presented Kenny a specially handcrafted piece of silver marble and roughly hewn sandstone rock that imagines the Irish symbol of shamrock as a votive candle-stand or an aarti lamp, with a peacock perched by the side of shamrock leaves, along with silver-tipped crystal dewdrops signifying serenity and purity.

The Irish Prime Minister presented Modi with an Irish cricket team jersey and a Hurling bat and ball.

Modi arrived in Dublin today on the first leg of his two-nation trip to Ireland and United States.

Earlier, the Prime Minister was received by Ireland Health Minister Leo Varadkar at Dublin Airport.

This is the first visit by an Indian Prime Minister to Ireland in 60 years.
