The Shamrock Summit was a summit meeting that took place in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada during March 1985. It was a meeting between Prime Minister of Canada Brian Mulroney and President of the United States Ronald Reagan.[1]

It was nicknamed the "Shamrock Summit" because both leaders had an Irish background. The meeting is well known because both leaders began to sing the song "When Irish Eyes are Smiling".
