first_imgTOURISM chiefs are working behind the scenes to get Britain’s Prince Charles to visit Glenveagh Castle and Sliabh Liag next month.Charles and his wife Camilla will be in Ireland for four days between May 19 and May 22, with two days in the North and two days in the Republic.He is set to visit Lissadell and Mullaghmore, the scene of his great uncle’s assassination by the IRA in 1979. Lord Louis Mountbatten and three other people – including a teenage boy – died when the IRA blew up his fishing boat.The prince is expected to visit the scene of the tragedy.However Tourism Ireland is keen to use the visit to push tourism in the North West.Charles is a keen walker and environmentalist and tourism bosses want to include Donegal destinations during his trip. Slieve League are Ireland’s highest sea cliffs – and Glenveagh Castle our most visited attraction.“It’s the perfect opportunity to highlight the whole North West and we are looking at including stop-overs in Donegal,” said one Tourism Ireland source.“If we can include Glenveagh and Slieve League it would be a fantastic boost to Donegal.”Details of the trip won’t be made public until just hours beforehand for security reasons.But it is being welcomed as another chance for reconciliation. Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams said he hopes the visit will be “an occasion to promote reconciliation, respect and understanding”.He added: “The visit by the British Queen to the Garden of Remembrance, her words of reconciliation and the subsequent meetings with Martin McGuinness demonstrated the potential of these events.”BID TO GET PRINCE CHARLES TO VISIT GLENVEAGH AND SLIABH LIAG was last modified: April 22nd, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalPrince Charlesvisitlast_img
