An extra date has not formally be announced for the US Presidents visit

Detailed discussions between specialist Gardaí and the US Secret Service have been ongoing “for months” ahead of Joe Biden’s visit to Ireland.

The Sunday Independent reports Garda sniper teams will be on rooftops anytime the US President enters a public place.

Public drain covers will also be temporarily welded shut, to ensure terrorists cannot place bombs underground.

It adds divers will check all bodies of water, and the monitoring of dissident criminals is at a “heightened level.”

The Garda Special Detective Unit (SDU) will be responsible for the US president’s protection while on Irish soil.

​Plain-clothes members of the Emergency Response Unit (ERU) will be responsible for the security detail of the US president.

It is understood that at least two dozen members of the armed ERU will be assigned to protect him.

Gardaí, PSNI and the FBI have been drawing up lists of any person who might try and target Mr Biden during his trip.

An exact date for his visit has not yet been formally announced, but he’s expected to arrive on April 17th.
