Governor Deval Patrick will travel to the Republic of Ireland next week, joining Senate President Therese Murray for a portion of her 10-day trade mission to the region.
Patrick is slated to spend three days in Dublin and meet with the prime minister, the minister for foreign affairs, and trade and business leaders in the country, his office said Thursday.
Murray will meet with political and business officials in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. She will attend events in Dublin, Belfast, and other cities, her office said.
“I am delighted that the governor will be joining us in Ireland,” Murray said in a statement. “This trade mission is a great opportunity for us to strengthen our international connections, expand opportunities for Massachusetts companies, and continue to promote the Commonwealth as a portal for health care, technology, and life sciences in the United States.”
Patrick will depart Massachusetts on Tuesday evening and return on Friday afternoon, his office said.Joshua Miller can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @jm_bos.
