Vice president Mike Pence has announced his intentions to retrace his Irish roots during his upcoming visit to Ireland, due to take place between the dates of September 6 and 7.

In a tweet that Pence posted on Thursday, Trump's right-hand man said that he looked forward to meeting president Michael D. Higgins, Taoiseach Leo Varadker and Taniste Simon Coveney during the trip.

He also added that he would be celebrating his 'Irish roots' while he is on the Emerald Isle, which will take place after he and Karen Pence have visited Iceland and England.

However, given Pence's popularity which isn't exactly at an all-time high, the prospect of him travelling around the country where his grandfather Richard Michael Cawley originated from has not been received all that positively.

Here are just a few of the responses from irate Irish people and a few Americans too who definitely won't be up for sharing a drink with the Veep when he touches down there early next month.
