    We are expecting a Chinese visitor to arrive in June.
    She will have a UK Visa & travel to Northern Ireland.
    Can she visit places over the border without an Irish Visa?
    Can she fly out of Dublin without having gained an Irish Visa?
    She will be in transit on a European Tour (with a friend who is Australian).
    Appreciate any guidance or advice as I want to get this visit right.
    Thank you. Roisin
