Pope Francis has landed in Ireland.

The pontiff arrived at Dublin Airport shortly after 10.30 this morning.


The Pope's plane 'Shepard One' appeared in the Sky over Dublin around a half an hour ago.

He was greeted by Tánaiste and Foreign Affairs Minister Simon Coveney and his family.

Mr Coveney's children welcomed the pontiff to the country saying 'welcome to Ireland' in Irish, English and Spanish.

The tricolour and the vatican flag flew in front of the plane as it pulled up and the Pope greeted senior church officials.

His next stop is a meeting with President Michael D Higgins in Phoenix Park where he'll celebrate mass tomorrow.
