Ireland's the land of Guinness and Conor McGregor, but now it may be the land of Donald Trump's imagination.
A Nigerian man says he is shocked after learning US President Donald Trump tried to pass off words from his poem as an old Irish proverb.
At a meeting with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny, Mr Trump told the room: "As we stand together with our Irish friends, I'm reminded of that proverb - and this is a good one, this is one I like. I've heard it for many, many years and I love it.
"'Always remember to forget the friends that proved untrue. But never forget to remember those that have stuck by you.'
"We know that, politically speaking. A lot of us know that, we know it well. It's a great phrase," Mr Trump added.
But his reference left Irish literature lovers perplexed.
An investigation showed Mr Trump's quote came from a poem called 'Remember to Forget', written by Nigerian Albashir Adam Alhassan, and featured on PoemHunter in 2013.
"My sister just brought the news to me. I didn't want to believe what she said initially," Mr Alhassan told CNN.
"I posted those things when I was back in school, over 10 years ago. I never thought it would get to this level.
"Maybe I shouldn't have been a banker; maybe I should have been a poet all my life!" Mr Alhassan added.
Former US President Barack Obama's speechwriter, Cody Keenan, believed there was a simple explanation.
