President Michael D. Higgins has thanked the public for the outpouring of well wishes which he has received since his admission to St James’s Hospital yesterday evening and would like to express his deep appreciation to all those who have sent messages to him, as well as to the medical staff for their continuing care.

Following tests which were carried out after his admission, the President will remain in hospital over the weekend in order to monitor his blood-pressure. It is anticipated that the President will return to Áras an Uachtaráin early next week.
