Tánaiste welcomes historic State Visit to United Kingdom
Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Eamon Gilmore T.D., has welcomed the announcement this evening of a State Visit by President Higgins to the United Kingdom as an historic development.
"The visit will be immensely important for the Irish in Britain. It marks a further milestone for the peace process in Northern Ireland. It reflects an economic, social and cultural relationship that has grown steadily closer. In short, it will bring British-Irish relations to a new level."
