Subject: First Lady Will Visit Ireland, U.K.

First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, at the request of the president, will travel to Ireland and the United Kingdom later this month.

The four-day trip will take her to Dublin, Belfast and London. The focus of her Ireland stops is to bring attention to the role of women and youth in democracy and the peace process. It is her second Irish trip; she was there with the president almost exactly two years ago.

Mrs. Clinton departs Washington on Oct. 30 for Dublin where she will attend an official function hosted by the Irish government at Dublin Castle. She will deliver the innaugural Joyce McCartan Memorial Lecture at the University of Ulster in Belfast. Mrs. Clinton met Ms. McCartan, founder of the Women's Information Drop-In Centre to unite Catholic and Protestant women, during her 1995 visit. The lecture was named in McCartan's memory as she died last year.

While in Belfast, the first lady will also speak to "Generation 2000 -- Young People in the New Millenium," a gathering of Catholic and Protestant youth from across Northern Ireland.

Mrs. Clinton then travels to London at the invitation of Prime Minister Tony Blair. She will participate in a closed seminar hosted by Blair which will include participants from the U.S. and U.K. focusing on shared policy perspectives and common challenges.
