British Queen arrives in Dublin for historic visit

Text size Aa Aa

Queen Elizabeth II has arrived in Dublin at the start of her historic visit to the Irish Republic.
 
The British monarch is the first to set foot in Ireland on a state visit since it became independent from London in 1921.
 
The four-day event is aimed at showing that the two countries are now reconciled after decades of strife.
 
But a coded warning in London yesterday followed by a series of bomb alerts in Dublin today are  stark reminders that a small minority are still unhappy about the British presence in the North.
