No invite to Ireland?

Hi everyone, is there any logical explanation as to why the Queen has never paid a State visit to the Republic of Ireland?.......is it simply because she has never recieved an invitation, or maybe there's a bit more to it than that?

One would imagine that the ongoing state of tensions with regards to Northern Ireland would be the reason. Take a look at the history of Anglo-Irish relations since 1922 (at least!), and you have your answer.

Additionally, security would be an enormous issue. The Provos would have a field day with a visit by HM to Ireland, and while it's true that the IRA has disarmed, I imagine some of the still-extant hardliners wouldn't see too much of a problem with trying something on if she were to visit.

There's been talk recently of a possible visit next year, but I suspect such rumors abound every year.

actually the Irish President has extended an invitation to the Queen to visit on condition that policing and justice powers are devolved to the assembly in northern ireland - that is due to happen at some point in the next year so i guess we will wait and see

the queen probably would never have been welcomed in ireland as tensions remain pretty high about any sort of british influence or control but i guess the time is right now to extend the welcome to her

Here are some pics of today's second engagement with
less watermarks:

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II speaks to student Stacy Long during a
visit to the dental room of Lisneal College in Londonderry, Northern
Ireland, on 06 May, 2009. The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh
arrived in the British province for a three-day visit.

I don't think that the gentleman on pic 2 ever dreamed of meeting
the Queen in a situation like this...

Completely understandable Nevertheless I think that his brave
reaction impressed her more - I hope he was asked before the
Queen entered the room..

Here are some of today's pics in a bigger version:

Agency, during a visit to the Bangor, Northern Ireland, May 7, 2009.

I notice today is one of those rare occasions when HM wears her brooch on her right side (obviously due to her assymetric coat design)

The coat design isn't assymetric, the buttons are straight down the center. There are however appliques on the left side of the coat.
