Two Cabinet ministers have said they'll take part in public protests during Donald Trump's Irish visit.
Finian McGrath and John Halligan - who are both ministers of state from the Independent Alliance - have suggested they'll join public demonstrations during the planned November trip.
Minister McGrath told the Sunday Independent he would "not roll out the red carpet" for the current US President.
Labour, People Before Profit and the Green Party have all called for mass protests during Trump's visit.
Speaking today, Labour leader Brendan Howlin observed: "We've had differences with previous presidents of the United States... but there is a new level of reaction against everything that Donald Trump stands for.
"There will be a very strong rallying of Irish public opinion - of all shades, from right to left."
The planned 'brief visit' by Trump was announced by the White House and Irish Government on Friday, with Tánaiste Simon Coveney suggesting the "US President is always welcome in Ireland".
President Trump will visit Ireland in November. The US President is always welcome in Ireland. Our two countries have such strong historic, economic, cultural and family ties. Maintaining those connections is always a top priority ðŸ‡ºðŸ‡¸ðŸ‡®ðŸ‡ªðŸ‡ªðŸ‡º
