The US President Donald Trump is to visit Ireland in November.
The White House announced plans for the visit in a statement this evening.
President Trump is making the trip as part of a European tour that will also see him travel to Paris for a commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the armistice that brought the First World War to a close.
The White House says the Irish visit will "renew the deep and historic ties between our two nations."
