President Michael D Higgins hosted the Aga Khan at a reception in Áras an Uachtaráin on Saturday marking the Shia Muslim leader’s 60th anniversary in office.

His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan IV is visiting Ireland after the holding of the Nations’ Cup at the Dublin Horse Show, the international show jumping competition which was established with help of his late grandfather Sultan Muhammed Shah Aga Khan III.

The two leaders expressed a commitment to work together to “support sustainable development and the strengthening of civil society to improve the quality of life of poor and marginalised communities,” a spokesman for the President said.

The Aga Khan family’s engagement with Ireland’s equine industry and related economic development spans three generations.
