This translates as confirmation of the arrangements for the upcoming visit of President Michael D Higgins to London and Coventry.

First we have Queen Elizabeth over to visit Ireland, and then she has our best and brightest over for shindig and now this.

The two countries relationship seems to be getting closer and closer.

British and Irish relations go from strength to strength as the royals tweet “as Gaeilge”.Getty
