Speaking in CityWest in Dublin this afternoon, Mr Kenny said the Queen’s visit and that of US President Barack Obama were important for the country.

The Taoiseach also confirmed British Prime Minister David Cameron would make his first official visit to Ireland next week.

Mr Cameron’s visit will come during the Queen’s time in Ireland and he will take part in bilateral talks with Mr Kenny at Government Buildings.

Mr Kenny said the British Prime Minister was ‘very supportive of Ireland in terms of the business and politics of what we have to do’.

The Taoiseach said both men would discuss the current issues facing Ireland, as well as the wider European political landscape.

Results of the recent Assembly elections in Northern Ireland would also form part of the meeting.

Both men will later attend a reception with Queen Elizabeth in Dublin.

Mr Kenny also said he hoped large numbers of tourists would visit Ireland as a result of the high profile State occasions.
