Queen in Dublin next month..?

THE Queen is to visit Northern Ireland next month to distribute Maundy money, in a move described by the News Letter as “unprecendented since the beginning of the Troubles” – a reference to the fact that it’s safe enough to announce it well in advance. (Should give éirígí enough time to prepare their protest). There will be the usual speculation that Her Maj may even take a wee trip to Dublin, which would make her the first British monarch in nearly a century to visit the city. If now isn’t the right time, when is?!
