RTE is reporting that Catherine McCartney has confirmed that the family have received an invitation to visit US President George Bush at the White House on St Patrick’s Day. She also said that despite all the publicity, there has been no real progress in bringing the killers of [Robert] McCartney to justice. Meanwhile, in addition to being excluded from the White House event, NI political parties might not get an invite to the House of Representatives luncheon, the Belfast Telegraph reports a spokesman for House of Representatives Speaker, Dennis Hastert, said he still did not know if the other Northern Ireland parties will be excluded from the event but said that Sinn Fein were “definitely not invited” – we’ll wait to see if anyone gets an invite.
