The Sovereign will have working meetings notably with the President, Mrs Mary McAleese, the Prime Minister, Mr Enda Kenny, the Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Mr Phil Hogan, as well as the Speaker of the Upper House of the Irish legislature, Mr Pat Moylan, and the Lord Mayor of Dublin, Mr Gerry Breen.
During certain events, such as the visit to Trinity College Dublin, the Prince will be accompanied by a delegation of the Monaco Economic Development Chamber in order to enable a genuine know-how transfer between economic decision-makers, especially as regards the development of processes using renewable energies.
In the context of His involvement in the protection of the environment, the Sovereign will also visit the Marine Institute in Oranmore with Mr Robert Calcagno, the Director of the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco, in order to initiate a scientific cooperation between both establishments.
Finally, this state visit will be the opportunity for the Prince to highlight Irish literature and art through a competition organised for the students of the Principality. The entertainment for the evening will be provided by young Monegasque musicians from the Prince Rainier III Foundation Music and Theatre Academy, who will play Irish music. The winners of the competition will be able to present their productions in Farmleigh House, where a "Princess Grace" exhibition will be inaugurated by the Prince in the presence of numerous personalities.
This trip, which will take place fifty years after the official visit by Prince Rainier and Princess Grace, will aim to reinforce the already close links between the two countries.
