Edel Golden, a native of Kilfian near Ballina, has just returned from a trip of a lifetime to the White House in Washington DC where she filmed for one week for MAYOTV.ie and IRISHTV.ie. The trip coincided with the visit of An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD to New York and Washington.
Commenting on the filming excursion, Edel said it was a dream come true.
“Personally, it was an amazing experience for me as a journalist to be present at the White House and filming in the iconic Oval Office with An Taoiseach Enda Kenny and US President Barack Obama.
“MAYOTV.ie and IRISHTV.ie are always pushing out the boundaries of broadcasting and this trip to the USA certainly opened up a whole new audience for our programming.
“We are always trying to reach out to the Irish Diaspora at home and abroad and it was great to meet so many people that are really enjoying our programming,” commented Edel.
The magical atmosphere at the New York St. Patrick’s Day parade, filmed at Times Square and in Downtown Manhattan in New York, and, later the ceremonies at the Oval Office in the White House, can be viewed on both www.mayotv.ie and www.irishtv.ie.
