Taoiseach on tour in the US, meeting with Trump a possibility

The Taoiseach begins a three day trade mission to the United States today.

Enda Kenny will travel to meet business leaders in Silicon Valley and New York.

Mr Kenny says it is a timely opportunity to promote Ireland as a gateway for American firms into Europe.

The Taoiseach may meet with the President-elect Mr Trump while visiting the states.

It is reported Mr Kenny mentioned the trip to Mr Trump during their 10 minute phone call last week and a face to face meeting was discussed.
