US-based news website Irishcentral.com reported earlier today that Mr Trump’s visit to Doonbeg was cancelled.

However, Mr Trump’s official spokeswoman told Independent.ie today that the visit to the West Clare resort may still take place.

“Mr. Trump's schedule has not yet been finalised,” the spokeswoman said in response to an email query.

Pressed on whether the Irish leg of the European tour would happen, the spokeswoman replied: “We hope so”.

Reports Mr Trump, the presumptive republican nominee, had pulled out of his visit was treated with relief within Government circles.

On Friday, Taoiseach Enda Kenny said he would meet Mr Trump - despite describing his views as “racist” and “dangerous”.
