Meeting the US Ambassador to Ireland

Brian Gallagher and Ambassador O'Malley

I had a private tour of the US Ambassador’s residence, in Dublin’s Phoenix Park, as part of my forthcoming documentary Park People, due to be broadcast on Newstalk FM.

Ambassador Kevin O’Malley was a fascinating and gracious host who showed me around Deerfield, the residence that once housed the Chief Secretary for Ireland, and which has been home to successive American ambassadors since 1927.

We toured the beautifully landscaped walled gardens and as well as the interior of the house, which has had many famous visitors, including John F Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama.
