In pictures: Michael D Higgins meets President Hollande in Paris

Lovely weather they’re having in France….

PRESIDENT MICHAEL D Higgins is in Paris this week and yesterday met with his French counterpart Francois Hollande and launched a major art exhibition in the capital.

It was day one of the President’s three-day visit to France with yesterday’s meeting with Hollande focussing on EU affairs, and Ireland’s presidency of the EU.

Today the President is delivering an address entitled ‘Drawing water from the same well – the central importance of UNESCO in building peace through the recognition of the power of culture’ at UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

A Franco-Irish business networking lunch and later an Irish community reception are also on the agenda.

But here are a few pictures from day one of the trip:
