President Higgins was inaugurated for the second term today

President Michael D Higgins will be inaugurated as Ireland's president tonight.

It has been over two weeks since President Higgins was re-elected to Áras, and he will swear in for a second term tonight.

The constitution states that the president was inaugurated the day after the mandate of the former president was terminated.

But this year, the date of the inauguration coincides with the end of the First World War, and President Higgins has asked that those who wish to attend memorial championships be facilitated.

As a result, the inauguration will take place at St Patrick's Hall in Dublin Castle from 18:00.

President Higgins is Ireland's 9th President, and is the fifth serving two terms of employment.

He was re-elected for a second period after winning 56% of the vote, the largest number of first preferential votes ever in an Irish presidential election.
