Her Late Majesty the Queen

Her Late Majesty the Queen

It will go down as one of the defining moments of the peace process – when the Her Late 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 Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth and President Michael D. Higgins both attended the event in the Lyric Theatre as joint patrons, and then Deputy First Minister, the Late Martin McGuinness, attended 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.
