On Tuesday 17th May 2011 Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Phillip began a historic State Visit to Ireland, the first by a reigning English monarch to the Republic.

Four days of exceptional events followed – from military ceremonies at Dublin’s Garden of Remembrance and Islandbridge to the Rock of Cashel, from Aras an Uachtarain to Croke Park, and form Government Buildings to a concert for the Queen at Dublin’s Convention Centre. The following Monday, US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama arrived at Dublin airport for a whirlwind series of engagements. These included a memorable visit to the president’s ancestral home of Moneygall, Co. Offaly and a public address to tens of thousands of people gathered at College Green, Dublin.

RTE’s cameras followed the Queen and the President during a remarkable and unique week in Ireland and RTE’s pictures were broadcast around the world. This DVD contains over 4 hours of edited highlights from Ireland’s Week of Welcomes.
