Re-building brand Ireland - Newly elected Irish government jet off on St Patrick's day mission

New investment and mending a faltering global reputation is what is on the agenda this week for Ireland's newly elected government.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny,has said he would meet with U.S. President Barack Obama in the White House on March 17 for a now-annual ceremony of Irish-American solidarity.
He also plans to meet Capitol Hill leaders and potential business investors during his two-day Washington trip.
In a positive step taken by our new Taoiseach, only nine of Ireland's 15 Cabinet ministers would travel overseas, and to fewer places he identified as "top priorities for Irish trade, business and jobs." Unlike previous years where upwards of 24 ministers travelled aboard - expensively!
Could this be the turn around that Ireland so badly needs? Could St Patrick's week 2011 be the beginning of a new brand Ireland?

Are you bothered with Paddy's day this year?
