The Irish Prime Minister has said Northern Ireland's Deputy First Minister, Martin McGuinness, is right to attend a banquet hosted by the Queen next week.
The event at Windsor Castle is part of a state visit by the Irish President Michael D Higgins to Britain.
Enda Kenny told the Andrew Marr Show he did not see why Mr McGuinness, who is a former IRA commander should not attend.
The Taoiseach also raised the prospect of a visit by a member of the Royal family to Dublin, as part of centenary commemorations for the Easter Rising in 2016.
