Donald Trump has cancelled his planned visit to Ireland in November.

Last month the US president announced his intention to come to Ireland taking the government by surprise.

Less than two weeks ago Donald Trump announced he would return to Ireland to renew the deep and historic ties between our two countries.

He last came here in 2014 - before running for office.

The trip was scheduled to form part of a wider European visit which would include the Armistice celebrations in Paris on November 11th

Details of the US Presidents Irish itinerary were due to be worked out between officials from both countries but it was thought likely that Donald Trump's hotel in Doonbeg in Co Clare would feature on the list of locations.

Opposition parties had called for protests to coincide with the visit and Ministers of State John Halligan and Finnian McGrath both said they would participate in any demonstrations.

It's not clear why the visit has been cancelled.
