Taoiseach Enda Kenny brought presents to the White House for Donald Trump's wife Melania and youngest son Barron, in addition to the traditional bowl of shamrock.

This year the crystal bowl handed over by Mr Kenny was made in the Waterford Gaeltacht of An Rinn by Eamonn Terry, founder of Criostal na Rinne and a master glasscutter with more than 45 years' experience.

Mr Kenny also gave the president some Declan Killen cufflinks and a Bord Bia hamper containing a selection of Irish produce.

Irish linen and a Carrickmacross lace brooch was presented to Melania Trump and 'The Moon Spun Round: WB Yeats for Children' was gifted to 10-year-old Barron Trump.

A framed copy of the census of Ireland 1911 was presented to Vice-President Mike Pence.

It includes Mr Pence's grandfather Richard Cawley and his great grandmother Ellen Cawley.
