He’s down to check out the outdoor dining set-up.
Taoiseach Mícheál Martin is currently visiting his native Cork, and will be doing the rounds throughout the city centre today (8 June).
One of the chief purposes of the visit is for the Taoiseach, who is TD for Cork South-Central, to survey thoroughfares such as Princes Street – one of the 17 city centre streets that has been pedestrianised in order to facilitate the return to outdoor hospitality. The Taoiseach is expected in the area from 12.50pm this afternoon.
The Taoiseach will be accompanied by Ann Doherty, Chief Executive of Cork City Council.
Martin is already in Cork, and has shared photos to his Twitter account from a trip to West Cork.
West Cork was beautiful in the Bank Holiday sunshine.
Such a privilege to spend some time enjoying nature – and taking in these views. pic.twitter.com/4UpxRizczT
