Pictures: Day one of Michael D Higgins in Chile

The President met with his Chilean counterpart on a busy day of public engagements.

PRESIDENT MICHAEL D Higgins has held talks with the Chilean president Sebastian Pinera in Santiago today as he got his two-week South American trip under way.

The President met with Pinera at the Palacio de La Moneda earlier and later today will be the guest of honour at a dinner hosted by the Chilean leader.

Earlier in the day Higgins laid a wreath at the grave of Bernardo O’Higgins, a Chilean independence leader with Irish roots.

Here are some pictures:
