WAR VETERANS FROM the Republic and Northern Ireland will be honoured in a second cross-border remembrance service this afternoon.

The Press Association reports that Mayor of Drogheda, Paul Bell, will stand beside DUP Mayor of Newtownabbey, Paula Bradley, to attend a Poppy Day commemoration in Whiteabbey, Co Antrim.

Bell’s great-grandfather was died fighting with the British Army in World War I.

Last Thursday, another cross-border service was held in Drogheda.

Today, after a church service, veterans and serving soldiers, sailors and airmen and cadets will be saluted in Whiteabbey.
