    As President Pompidou was settling into the Elysee Palace, ex-President de Gaulle was being welcomed to Phoenix Park, the official residence of the President of Eire in Dublin. The General and Madame de Gaulle were greeted by President Eamon De Valera, whose guests they have been during their holiday in the Republic.

    78 year old General de Gaulle and his wife have been staying at Kenmare Estate, Killarney, in the South West of Eire since the General resigned the French Presidency. They drove the 200 miles (320 km) to Dublin today by car, accompanied by Irish security guards.

    In Dublin they were greeted by 86 year old President De Valera.

    No programme has been issued for the de Gaulles' Dublin visit, but it is expected that they will attend a dinner at Dublin Castle given by the Eire Government on Thursday before returning to France by military jet.

    Tonight (Tuesday) they had dinner at Phoenix Park with President and Mrs De Valera. They will be house guests at the Irish Presidential Residence.
