US President Donald Trump was greeted by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar when he touched down in Shannon yesterday. We get all the shades of the country's reaction to the controversial President's visit. 

Aideen finnegan reports from Doonbeg on last night's festivities, and later Tommy Tubridy, owner of Tubridy’s Bar and Restaurant in Doonbeg tells us how Eric and Donald Trump Junior got on with locals.

Pat Breen, Minister of State for Trade, Employment and Business, speaks after joining the Taoiseach at Shannon airport, while Siobhan O’Donoghue, Founding Director of UPLIFT tells us why she's helping to bring the Trump Blimp to Dublin. 

Finally, we ask Colm O’Gorman Executive Director of Amnesty International Ireland and John Bruton, Former Taoiseach and Former Ambassador of the European Union to the United States if we should welcome or shun the US President.
