Visitors learned about the history behind the Irish mementos in the Senator’s office and the Senator’s role in the Northern Irish peace process.   The tour will be offered at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. and is included with the purchase of admission to the Institute. Space is available on a first-come, first-served basis and pre-registration is highly encouraged.
