On June 6, 1944, allied troops launched a surprise military operation, known as the D-Day Normandy Landings, in which more than 2 million soldiers landed in Normandy, northern France.

While Trump's trip to Ireland will be his first visit since his inauguration in 2017, the U.S. president is no stranger to the country. Following disagreements over the location, Shannon Airport emerged in recent days as the most likely venue for a meeting between the Taoiseach and the USA president.

And while final details of the visit have yet to be confirmed it has been revealed that the president will hold talks with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar at Shannon Airport.

The trip will come after his three-day state visit to the United Kingdom, which will begin on 3 June.

"Detailed arrangements around the visit will be made public in due course", she said.

The US president owns the Doonbeg golf resort in County Clare, which is not far from Shannon.

He also visited his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland at that time.

The airport has already been inspected by Secret Service and Garda officers and has been deemed suitable from a security standpoint. They are to attend ceremonies marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Normandy on June 6. Since his election, both Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Leo Varadkar have invited the president to Ireland during St Patrick's Day celebrations in D.C.
