Presidents Kennedy, Clinton and Reagan all took in Ireland as well as Britain on visits during their presidency.

Vice President Biden recently told a Washington insider that he had told President Obama that he wanted to visit Ireland, but Obama told him 'I'll get there first."
Obama's Irish roots have been traced to Moneygall, County Offaly on the Tipperary border.
The American Ambassador Dan Rooney has consistently stated that he believed a trip to Ireland by the president was inevitable.
