Hillary Clinton has been inducted into the Irish American Hall of Fame for her role in the Irish peace process.

The ceremony in New York that is also being attended by the Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams, will see Clinton recognised for her commitment to the Irish peace process over the course of her career in public service.

Irish America magazine is commending her for her focus on empowering women including mothers and wives who had sons or husbands caught up in the troubles.

As New York Senator and Secretary of State she is also commended for keeping Northern Ireland a part of US foreign policy.

Minister for Arts Heather Humphreys will give a short address ahead of Clinton’s key note speech taking the place of minister for foreign affairs Charlie Flanagan.
