Bill Clinton takes golfing break in Ireland

Former President Clinton began a four-day visit to Ireland with one of his favorite leisure activities: a round of golf.

Clinton greeted well-wishers at Farranfore Airport in County Kerry at midmorning Sunday, then headed for the golf course at Ballybunion for a game with former Irish foreign minister Dick Spring and two others.

Clinton, who visited Ireland three times while he was president, was asked by one onlooker why he kept returning.

``I love it,'' he replied.

The former president planned to meet with Prime Minister Bertie Ahern and President Mary McAleese and deliver a lecture at Trinity College in Dublin.

Clinton, who actively supported the Northern Ireland peace process during his years as president, is expected to visit Northern Ireland on Wednesday and Thursday before traveling to England.
