DUBLIN - Flights to and from Ireland may be disrupted later this week from an ash cloud billowing from a volcano in Iceland, the Irish Aviation Authority said on Monday.

The IAA said it did not expect any flight disruptions within the next 48 hours due to the volcanic ash. US President Barack Obama is due to fly out of Dublin on Tuesday morning for a state visit to Britain.

"We don't believe there will be any kind of disruption in the next 48 hours," Martin Towey, the IAA's senior aviation executive said. "There could possibly be some disruption towards the end of the week."
