The St. Patrick’s Day reception in the White House is hosted by the President of the United States. Those attending, including those proposed by the Taoiseach of the day, are invited and attend as his guests.

As I set out in my previous reply, I am advised that it is not the practice for the names of those invited by the US President to such events to be made public.
