PRINCE CHARLES AND his wife Camilla will visit Cork and Kerry tomorrow and Friday.

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall’s visit will commence at 10.30am tomorrow in Cork city where a number of engagements will take place.

On Friday, the Royal couple will travel to Kerry where they will visit Derrynane, Tralee and Killarney before departing that evening.

Cork city, Tralee and Killarney will be open for business as usual. The public are welcome to visit these centres and will be facilitated to view the visit of Their Royal Highnesses.

For those that are visiting those areas, the Gardaí have some advice;

  • Arrive in good time, and not to carry large luggage or bags as these items will not be permitted in certain viewing areas
  • People going about their daily business will be facilitated but some minor delays may be experienced and in this regard people are advised to allow extra time for their journeys.
  • There will be parking and pedestrian restrictions and some road closures in Kerry on Friday.
