NEWBURY, ENGLAND - APRIL 10: President of Ireland Michael D Higgins talks with Trainer Andrew Balding (right) and Jockey Richard Hughes at the Kingsclere Park House Stables on April 10, 2014 in Newbury, England. Ireland's Michael D. Higgins is making the first state visit by a president of the republic since it gained independence from neighbouring Britain. The visit comes three years after Queen Elizabeth II made a groundbreaking trip to the republic, which helped to heal deep-rooted unease and put British-Irish relations on a new footing.
