In case you have somehow managed to miss it, possibly been living under a rock or the like, President Michael D. Higgins is across the pond visiting the Queen this week, becoming the first Irish President to make an official state visit to Britain. Live coverage will be broadcast throughout the day on RTE, and will feature the President's arrival and ceremonial welcome, his speech at the House of Parliament, as well as coverage of the state banquet at Windsor castle, where the President will also give a speech. No doubt he'll do us proud.
