A MAJOR garda operation to ensure a safe visit to the Rock of Cashel by the Queen of England, is being put in place ahead of the state visit. It’s understood the gardaí may involve the Army in securing the area around the Rock and Hore Abby ahead of the State visit to the first-ever visit to the Republic by HRH Queen Elizabeth.
Gardaí are in place around the Rock and security is working overtime to ensure the visit goes off smoothly. Meanwhile, some posters which read ‘Tipp No Queen’ have been taken down around the streets of Cashel and Thurles by gardai.
