The Queen visits Ireland

"A man was detained by riot police during demonstrations in north Dublin. Queen Elizabeth II began a four day state visit to Ireland, the first state visit by a reigning British monarch since Ireland's independence." (c) NyTimes

The media is awash with coverage of the Queen of England’s visit to Ireland. This photograph by Cathal McNaughton / Rueters made the excellent NYTimes lensblog

Well done to the people of Cork, You have done what we in Dublin wish we Could have done.
Shown the true spirit, warmth and welcome that is so true of the real Irish.
Instead the view of Dublin is one of scumbag morans causing trouble.
I hope this visit by the Queen brings you prosperity and good fortune.
Good Luck.
