Highlights from Her Majesty the Queen’s iconic speech at the occasion of her visit to the Republic of Ireland from 17 May to 20 May 2011. The state visit marked the first time a British monarch had visited the Republic of Ireland in 100 years (since Queen Elizabeth II’s grandfather, King George V visited the country in 1911).

What were once only hopes for the future have now come to pass; it is almost exactly 13 years since the overwhelming majority of people in Ireland and Northern Ireland voted in favour of the agreement signed on Good Friday 1998, paving the way for Northern Ireland to become the exciting and inspirational place that it is today.
