On a recent visit to London Metropolitan University, President of Ireland Michael Higgins viewed a number of items from the TUC Library. The President was visiting the University on the invitation of the Irish Studies Centre.
As a former Labour politician, the President had also expressed an interest in meeting staff from the TUC Library and viewing some of the material. The photo below shows the President meeting Librarian of the TUC Library, Jeff Howarth.
The TUC Library has a unique collection of material relating to Irish history and trade unionism. An example of one of the items on display for the President can be seen below.
