Josette Sheeran took a detour, while on a busy offical visit to Europe, when she was Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Programme. American-born Sheeran has Irish ancestry, and she wanted to visit her ‘homeland’ of County Roscommon in Ireland.
It was to prove a poignant visit back in time, that reaffirmed for her the importance of her work today.
This was broadcast on RTÉ’s Nationwide programme on the 5th December 2007.
