Bomb threat as the Queen to visit Ireland

The discovery follows a massive security operation in and around Dublin after a bomb threat was issued by republican dissidents.

Irish police said up to 4,000 people were involved in the ongoing security operation for the four-day trip.

Queen trip

It is the first British monarch’s visit to Republic of Ireland since the country’s independence and comes as the country is experiencing renewed dissident republican violence.

King George V was the last reigning monarch to visit, in 1911, when what is now the Republic of Ireland was then part of the UK.
