Quote from the President's statement to media, following his meeting with German President Steinmeier. See www.president.ie   #CuairtStaitDE   Buailimid ag am suntasach athraithe agus dúshlánach. In amanna mar seo, tá sé tábhachtach a bheith ábalta tuiscint a bheith againn ar an gcríonnacht mhór agus ar na ceachtanna pianmhara inár stair chomhroinnte."

While in   #Berlin  , President Michael D. Higgins had the opportunity to view progress being made during the refurbishment of the German Parliament, the   #Bundestag  . The chamber is to get a new carpet, replacing the one that has been used over the past 20 years. Over the summer, the seats of the deputies were dismantled and the old carpet removed.   #cuairtstaitDe
