THE TAOISEACH AND Tánaiste will both travel to Northern Ireland this weekend to attend Remembrance Day events in Eniskillen and Belfast.

On Sunday, Enda Kenny will participate in a service at the Cenotaph in Eniskillen, where 25 people were killed by an IRA bomb in 1987.

Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore will attend the SDLP Conference in Armagh on Saturday where he will give a key not address before travelling to Belfast.

A Department of Foreign Affairs spokesperson told TheJournal.ie today that Gilmore will lay a laurel wreath in the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cenotaph at Belfast City Hall on Sunday.

Gilmore will become the first Irish minister to accept the city council’s invitation to participate in the Belfast ceremony. Northern Ireland First Minister Peter Robinson will also attend the service in Belfast.

Following the Remembrance Sunday service, Gilmore will meet with various staff members and Irish language cultural groups at a function at the Cultúrlan in west Belfast.
