President Michel Martelly , President of Haiti meets with Michael Dawson Cycle4haiti and Michael Carey , Soul of Haiti Chairman during his visit to Ireland last week . President Martellys visit to Ireland to mark Haiti Week was the first ever visit by a President of Haiti to Ireland . Speaking at the first Haiti Ball the President said he wanted to acknowledge the fantastic work that the people of Ireland had done and continue to do for his country, he said that Ireland had lead the way and had punched well above its weight in its response to the earthquake disaster and wanted to thank the Irish on his own behalf and that of the people of Haiti. We invited President Martelly to autograph this “Special Cycle Jersey” that has already been signed by President Clinton, and An Taoiseach Enda Kenny and we hope to auction this Jersey in the future to raise funds for the work of the Soul of Haiti Foundation.
