Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will address both Houses of the Oireachtas next month.

President Zelenskyy has accepted an invitation from the Ceann Comhairle Seán Ó Fearghaíl to address both the Dáil and Seanad virtually on April 6th.

He's made speeches to major parliaments around the world - including the Bundestag in Berlin, Westminster in London and the US Congress.

It's thought he will use the platform to highlight his country's plight during the Russian invasion.

Mr Zelenskyy will become the 22nd person to address both Houses since the foundation of the State.

Others include US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, French President François Mitterrand and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
