Michelle Obama will be landing on Irish shores next week but Garda warn that the two day visit could cause a number of traffic disruptions.

While President Obama attends the G8 summit in Northern Ireland, his wife and two daughters will be in Dublin next Monday and Tuesday.

The related security operation will include a number of road closures in the Dublin 2 area and commuters are advised to plan their journeys and use public transport for the duration of the visit if at all possible.

Mrs Obama has reportedly been eager to bring her children to Ireland following the success of the trip to Monegall with her husband in May 2011.
