The Pub Chit-Chatter about just about anything with other UK Cruisers!
It has been a landmark visit with the first monarch to visit Ireland in 100 years and indeed as a Republic.
Although we are living in a period of peace across all Ireland I feel that this is a brave move which hopefully cement the peace. I don't think we will see a United Ireland for a while but with peace and visits like this I think it will be a big step forward. Bombs in Ireland and the UK will not give the what they terrorists want.
I hope that the visit turns out to be the success it should be.
