U.S. first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha on Tuesday wrapped up their brief visit to Ireland with a private guided tour of Wicklow Mountains National Park.

Mrs. Obama and the girls have been taking in the sights here as President Barack Obama meets with other world leaders at the G8 summit in neighboring Northern Ireland.

Malia, 14, and Sasha, 12, listened attentively Tuesday as tour guide George McClafferty told them about the Wicklow park's sixth-century monastic ruins.

The first lady and her daughters were expected to have lunch in the coastal town of Dalkey - joined by U2's Bono, according to media accounts - before reuniting with the president in Northern Ireland, from where the family will travel to Germany.

The Obama women spent Monday in Dublin, visiting Trinity College and enjoying a special performance of "Riverdance" at the Gaiety Theatre. EFE
