Queen Elizabeth II begins 20th trip to Northern Ireland

AP:


Queen Elizabeth II arrived in Northern Ireland on Tuesday to celebrate the British territory’s hard-won peace in a town that suffered one of the IRA’s worst massacres.

Catholic and Protestant leaders from across Ireland united in Enniskillen at an ecumenical service in the monarch’s honor as, outside in wind and rain, several thousand people waved Union Jack flags and banners honoring the queen.
