The Taoiseach has invited Joe Biden to return to Ireland in their first phone call since the democrat's success in the US Presidential election.

Micheal Martin spoke with the US President-elect over the phone this afternoon, which he described as a warm and engaging conversation.


During the call, the Taoiseach congratulated President-elect Biden and Kamala Harris on their election win.

President-elect Biden recalled his strong Irish roots and his visit to Ireland with his family in 2016.

He also reaffirmed his full support for the Good Friday Agreement and they discussed the importance of a Brexit outcome that respects the GFA and ensures no return of a border on the island of Ireland.

They have both agreed to work closely together across a range of international areas including EU-US relations, Covid-19, economic recovery and climate change.
