DUBLIN — A series of strategic alliances between Irish and New York companies and educational institutions were announced this week by Senator Hilary Clinton on a two-day visit to Dublin.

Clinton, who led a 30-strong delegation to the city, also met President Mary McAleese and Taoiseach Bertie Ahern. Emerald Isle Immigration Center chairman Brian O’Dwyer was among those who accompanied Clinton on the trip.

Clinton said she had been due to visit last September but the trip was cancelled because of the Sept. 11 attacks.

“It’s going swimmingly here,” said O’Dwyer, who said that Clinton would be doing a public walkabout in Dublin on Tuesday afternoon. “We have been having a terrific time.”

A memorandum of understanding was signed between the Dublin Chamber of Commerce and Atlantic Corridor USA, which is a transatlantic business, education and cultural alliance based in Buffalo, N.Y.
