On 8 February, during his recent official visit to Italy, President Michael D. Higgins visited the Irish Franciscan College of St Isidore in the heart of Rome.

The Guardain, Fr. Míchéal MacCraith, OFM, and the community, greeted the President and his wife, Sabina. They were given a tour of the church and college founded in 1625 by Waterford friar, Luke Wadding, OFM.
