The Obamas have arrived in Ireland...

... to kick off their 6 day European trip. They'll arrive in Britain tomorrow, for what BBC North America correspondent Mark Mardell refers to as:
"A melange of pageantry and policy, and the political equivalent of both poetry and prose”
Mmm... tasty.

Here's what I know or have heard reported about the President's trip, so far (all subject to change, or just to discovering that I heard wrong):
  • Monday - Ireland
  • Tuesday - arrives in U.K. Meetings with Cameron and Miliband (and maybe Clegg? Not sure). State dinner in the evening
  • Wednesday: Barbecue being hosted at 10 Downing Street. Guests will be British and American service personnel and their families. 15:40 Speech to Parliment in Westminster Hall
