Haven't things pretty much settled down in the north now? Other than the usual security is there still concern over the various groups that used to cause so much trouble?

It's a lot better than during The Troubles but just recently the terror level was raised. This was 11 May

Quote:
British intelligence has raised the alert level across Britain for a Northern Irish terrorist attack from “moderate” to “substantial”.

MI5 said the rise, to the second-highest threat level, reflected a strong possibility of an attack.

The warning follows concerns among the security forces in both the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland about increasing violence by dissident republicans linked to a group calling itself the “New IRA”. Some of the violence appears to be part of a feud among rival drug gangs operating in Ireland.

I am a bit surprised to hear they are in Northern Ireland. I guess for security reasons they couldn't announce a head of time. Makes sense

Great to see the photos from the first day. Thanks for posting.

The Prince of Wales has met Northern Ireland's political leaders on the second day of his visit to the region.

The private and separate meetings with First Minister Arlene Foster and Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness began a packed schedule for the heir to the throne.

The prince talked with the Democratic Unionist leader and Sinn Fein veteran in two 20 minute behind-closed-doors encounters at the royal residence at Hillsborough Castle.

The leaders updated Charles on the current political and economic situation in Northern Ireland.

Thankfully 90% of us continue to live in harmony with each other, as we pretty much always have. Unfortunately, roughly 5% remain at either extreme, still intent on pursuing their own agenda. I guess because of the 5% at one of the extremities, certain precautions still have to be taken for a Royal visit - since, as one of the other posters has mentioned, the terror threat has risen recently according to MI5.
