President Michael D. Higgins will visit Cavan today

President Michael D. Higgins will visit Cavan today.

This is the first of two visits he has planned for the region in the coming weeks, with a visit to Glaslough organised for the end of April.

Today he will first travel to Gaelscoil Bhreifne in Cavan town in order to continue putting a focus on education, independent thought and the promotion of the Irish language.

Following that, President Higgins will visit The Cavan Centre in Ballyjamesduff, which offers recreational stays to community groups and respite stays for families in crisis, or who are homeless.
