US President Joe Biden could visit Ireland as soon as next month.
The Irish Daily Mirror reports high level talks are underway between US and Irish officials to facilitate the visit - which would coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement.
Bill and Hillary Clinton are also believed to be part of the delegation which will visit Ireland at the end of April.
It is expected President Biden will spend two days on a private visit to see his family in Mayo, with work ongoing to include a visit to family in Louth too.
The Democrat is immensely proud of his Irish roots, with acknowledged cousins traced to both Louth and Mayo.
He visited both in 2015 and when in Ballina in Mayo, he movingly turned a sod at the hospice there in honour of his own son Beau, who had tragically predeceased him.
