BRITAIN’S QUEEN ELIZABETH will visit the Guinness Storehouse, the war memorial at Islandbridge and Croke Park today – and is due to make her only public speech at Dublin Castle later this afternoon.

In her speech, during which she will be joinded by the British Prime Minister David Cameron at a state dinner, the Queen is likely to acknowledge past difficulties but unlikely to apologise.

The day will start with a ‘windows tour’ of the Guinness Storehouse, before holding a private meeting with the Taoiseach at Government Building and meeting the Cabinet.

Later in the day she is to lay a wreath at the Irish War Memorial Garden at Islandbridge. She will then travel to Croke Park, where she will be greeted by the Artane band and meet with some players during her tour of the grounds.
