Is the Queen set for her first Ireland trip? | Mail Online

As the Queen grins and bears South Africa's preposterous president Jacob Zuma, who arrives in London today, there is, I hear, a more welcome - and historic - state visit in the offing...to Ireland.

Royal visit on the cards

A royal visit by Queen Elizabeth to the Republic seems likely within the next 12 months.

Every year without fail i go to the Balmoral Show and always seem to choose the wrong day in regards to royal vists - OK i did see Prince Philip at the Show over 10 years ago now but these past few years ive missed the Queen, Charles (and Camilla a few years back), Anne, Edward and Andrew typical oh well i would have been more annoyed if it had been the Queen!!!

The show has had quite a few visits by royals especially sicne 2002 and now gets a royal over at least every other year

Great to see Charles though as this event is right up his streak - especially championing local products and food - though maybe not that particular ice-cream van!!!

What a pity, PrincessofEurope.. I can imagine how annoying that
must be if you actually had the chance to be there..

David Cameron was asked recently whether he would support a State visit by the Queen to Northern Ireland. He agreed.

If it comes off, it would certainly be a First, and well overdue.

It's the republic she would be making a historic visit to, not Northern Ireland, which she's visited several times.

So David Cameron agreed to a visit to the Republic of Ireland?

Gardai prepare plan for Queen's arrival - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

Gardai are preparing for their biggest security operation since the visit of Pope John Paul for Queen Elizabeth II's visit next year.

The date of the visit is not known but high-level discussions between British security services, police and the Garda Siochana have taken place.

Queen may visit Republic's Lismore castle - Republic of Ireland, Local & National - Belfasttelegraph.co.uk

One of Ireland's most famous castles is being tipped to host the Queen during her historic visit next year.

Speculation has mounted that, as well as her stay in Dublin, the Queen will spend at least one night in another location — possibly Waterford’s Lismore Castle.

BBC News - Could the Queen's next step be a Dublin visit?

The Queen's 18th visit to Northern Ireland has fuelled speculation that her next trip to the island could be to the Irish Republic.

In spite of almost 60 years on the throne, the Queen has never crossed the UK border into Ireland.
