Trump not welcome in Ireland, say Irish Labour amid visit speculation There is growing speculation that Donald Trump will visit Ireland in early June. Mr Trump will make a three-day state visit to the UK from June 3-5. He is expected to travel to France on June 6 to attend commemorations to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day at the Normandy American Cemetery.

The man escaped unharmed and no injuries were sustained during the attack according to Gardaí.

Senator Ó Ríordáin described the shooting as "reckless" and said that it's time for the Minister for Justice to step in.

"Consistently I have raised through Seanad commencement debates the need for increased Garda resources on the Northside.

"Do we have to wait for an incident similar to what happened a fortnight ago in Drogheda before we get a parade of the Minister and senior Gardaí?

"Will he only react when incidents reach a level of shock that he has no choice?"

He also questioned why the Northside is being ignored by the Minister.

Senator Ó Ríordáin concluded: "These are no ordinary crimes that don't deserve the attention of the Minister for Justice. He can no longer ignore the escalation in serious crime.

"It is time to take on the escalating number of gun shootings by committing the resources to tackle this once and for all."
