Cowen announces State visit of Queen Elizabeth II.

leave a comment »

Our Taoiseach Brian Cowen has announced that he expects the Queen of England to visit the republic before the end of the next year (2011). Speaking at 10 Downing Street on his first meeting with British prime minster David Cameron he can see no obstacle to the Royal visit this despite a long bloody history between the two countries. The British Monarch is know to want to visit for some time, both the English Queen and her husband are well in their 80’s and would feel that time is running out for a visit. Certainly Brian Cowen feels that a visit should go ahead but whether we all agree is a different matter. Has Ireland’s history put to right ? What about Northern Ireland ? Has that been resolved ? The every knows a-lot of currency was involved in the peace process. Surely the claim to be a “Republican” party should be dropped at least .
