President visits Linenhall Library

At a visit to the Linenhall Library in Belfast, President Michael D. Higgins spoke of the importance of the Linenhall Library as "an immensely valuable repository of Irish thought, literature and history" and an "incomparable archive of what is often referred to as 'the Troubles'."

In his speech, the President spoke of our shared responsibility, during the current decade of centenaries, to 'remember generously rather than narrowly'.
