Last Day in Ireland for the Dutch King and Queen
Their Majesties King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima started their third and last day in Ireland, on Friday June 14, in Cork, a city in south-west Ireland.
Upon the arrival the Royal Couple was officially welcomed by Cllr. John Sheehan, the Mayor of the city, in the town hall.
Then the King and the Queen sailed from Cork to Cobh, where they were informed about recent and future port development and expansion.
In Cobh the King and the Queen met with Dutch and Irish companies from the maritime infrastructure and port development sector.
During the visit was signed a cooperation agreement between Port of Cork and Port of Amsterdam at the presence of the Royal Couple.
The state visit ended in Camden Fort Meagher, a coastal defence fortification close in Crosshaven where the King and the Queen met with various volunteer organizations from the region that work on social cohesion in various fields.
