US VICE PRESIDENT Joe Biden is expected to visit Ireland later this year.

A spokesperson from the Department of Taoiseach told what while it was a “little too early” to have a date, the trip was “certainly spoken about in Washington yesterday”.

News of the visit came on the last day of Taoiseach Enda Kenny’s St Patrick’s Day Programme on the east coast.

Kenny is set to visit Los Angeles today.

It is also widely expected that US President Barack Obama will visit Ireland again at some point during his second term.

Obama previously visited Ireland in 2011. Biden, whose mother is of Irish descent, did not make the trip.
