The President of Germany Joachim Gauck concluded a three-day state trip to Ireland this
afternoon by visiting the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience.

Councillor James Breen, Cathaoirleach of Clare County Council, welcomed President
Joachim Gauck to the council owned Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience and
presented him with a photographic print of the Cliffs of Moher framed in
local slate, designed by Irish Slate Crafts.
