Biden honors Irish prime minister, heritage
Wednesday - 3/20/2013, 3:30pm EDT

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice President Joe Biden is stretching the luck of the Irish a few more days as he hosts the country's prime minister for a St. Patrick's Day breakfast.
Biden held the belated celebration Wednesday -- a day after he returned from Rome for the pope's installation -- in honor of Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny at his Naval Observatory residence.
The annual breakfast included Irish music, along with traditional cuisine including Irish soda bread.
Biden, wearing a green tie and handkerchief, proclaimed he's five-eighths Irish before reading a poem dated 1919 by his grandfather, Edward Francis Blewitt.
Kenny visited the Capitol with President Barack Obama and the White House for a reception on Tuesday.
