Her Majesty the Queen

Her Majesty the Queen

It will go down as one of the defining moments of the peace process – when Her Majesty the Queen shook hands with Martin McGuinness.

Co-operation Ireland is proud that it was at one of our events that this historic act took place in 2012.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and President Michael D Higgins both attended the event in the Lyric Theatre as joint patrons, and then Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness had been invited as a long-term supporter of the charity.

Mr McGuinness was due to come onto Co-operation Ireland’s board before his untimely passing from illness.
