US President Donald Trump has been welcomed to Ireland with his very own presidential petrol pumps – dubbed ‘Donald Plaza’.

The service station, based in Lissycasey, is the second of its kind to be built on Irish soil in honour of a US president.

The first came in 2014 when the nation marked Barack Obama’s visit and ancestral links to Ireland with the unveiling of Obama Plaza in Moneygall, County Offaly.

The latest petrol pumps appeared in the heartlands of Clare this morning, just a tee shot away from Trump’s golf links in Doonbeg.

Donald Plaza is expected to become a place of pilgrimage this week for fans of US President Donald Trump.

“Obama Plaza put Moneygall on the map,” said a Paddy Power spokesman. “And, while we couldn’t trace any of his ancestors to the area, or the country for that matter, we thought this was as good a place as any to slap a service station in his honour”.

“It’s remote, features derelict views and the beginnings of a wall are currently under construction.

“The similarities between the Plaza and Trump are actually remarkable when you think about it,” he added.

In true Donald fashion, the petrol station is decked out in gold, illuminated by chandeliers, and drips with classiness, offering a tremendous set of amenities including a ‘Make Americano Great Again’ ‘Covfefe Café’, Vlad’s Auto Repair, Golden Shower Facilities, Tremendous-Macs, Jose’s Wall Supplies, and Stormy’s Shakes.
