Disruption in Sligo today for Royal visit

Gardaí have advised people travelling to Sligo on Wednesday to expect traffic delays and disruption as day two of the Royal visit continues.

The day will begin with a civic reception and a viewing of the Niland Art Collection at the Model contemporary arts centre in Sligo town.

Former Sinn Féín Mayor of Sligo Seán McManus, whose son Joseph was killed in a gun battle with security forces in the North in 1992, will attend the function.

Prince Charles will then visit the Sligo Institute of Technology and the couple will have lunch at Lissadell. They will visit the grave of poet WB Yeats and attend an ecumenical service in St Columba’s Church in Drumcliffe.

The couple will then be taken to Mullaghmore Harbour and will conclude their day with a visit to Sligo races.

They will travel to Northern Ireland for engagements on Thursday and Friday.
