'Are you Irish?' Listen as J1 student describes her awkward encounter with Taoiseach

An Irish J1 student in Chicago was left red faced after she served the Taoiseach at a restaurant, but failed to recognise him!

Emma Kelly wrote on Twitter that she asked Leo Varadkar if he was Irish, put him on a waiting list and then a "tiny table", before realising who he was.

She then posted a picture of herself with the Taoiseach, who replied on Twitter saying that the food and service was great.

KEYWORDS: J1, Leo Varadkar
