Pope Francis has touched down in Dublin amid a huge security operation in the city.

The Pontiff landed at around 10.30am and will now make his way to Áras an Uachtaráin where he will be met by President Michael D. Higgins.

Later, the Pope will meet Taoiseach Leo Varadkar at Dublin Castle before parading through the streets of Dublin in the Popemobile. He is expected to meet with homeless families at Capuchin Day Centre before attending the Festival of Families at Croke Park this evening.

Tomorrow, he will celebrate mass at the Phoenix Park in front of an expected 500,000 people. Numerous road closures are in place throughout the weekend, details of which you can find here.
