Hillary Clinton jetted into Dublin this week to receive an honorary degree from Trinity College.

While she was here she also had discussions with Leo Varadkar about gender equality and world affairs.

The former First Lady received the Honorary Doctorate at Trinity College Dublin from Chancellor of the University, Mary Robinson – who she later had a public lecture with about the current challenges facing America and women in politics.
