HRH Queen Elizabeth II in Cork

Friday was a big day for Cork. For the first time Queen Elizabeth II visited Ireland and on her last day she came down to Cork.

She arrived with a helicopter together with the Duke of Edinburgh in Cork Airport and then visited the English Market, which got a lovely make over for the occasion, and later on the Tindall Institute.
The whole visit was only about an hour long.

Me and the man decided that we cant miss a day like that, so we positioned ourselves at the road along with 30000 people. We didnt made it into the city centre, but we saw them driving by twice. Unfortunatley they swapped places in the car so we saw the duke much better than the queen. I really wasnt all that excited before but the atmosphere was brilliant and i couldnt help myself but wave at them too. Only a little though :-) Loads of Garda were around too, but they were very friendly and the whole day was lovely!

My little camera didnt get any nice pics, so im stealing one of them man. Its not the best shot in the world but you see them.
