Gardaí beef up security ahead of Prince Charles visit due to activity of dissident republicans

A number of security sweeps have already been carried out.

GARDAÍ HAVE BEEN carrying out security sweeps of locations Britain’s Prince Charles will visit during a trip to Ireland in two weeks’ time.

Prince Charles has visited Ireland numerous times in recent years but security sources have told that additional security will be in place during this visit due to recent activity by dissident republicans.

In 2017, a dissident republican leader was jailed after discussing a bomb plot in the run-up to the State visit of Prince Charles in 2015.
