For the day that’s in it.

Frank O’Dea, of Balla Bán Art Gallery in Westbury Mall, Dublin, writes:

With Prince Charles and Camilla’s arrival to Dublin today, we have decided to mark the occasion with a bit of memorabilia of the man himself in the gallery window – a mug of a younger Prince Charles when he got engaged to Lady Diana. It’s the last of its kind and costs €20.

The inscription reads:

“Whatever beverage brims in this cup
Thank God for PRINCE CHARLES when you pick it up
And as you quaff it, bless that same grand Planner
Who gave him for a bride the fair DIANA.”


Prince Charles and Camilla head south to get a taste of the Áras (The Irish Times)

Thanks Frank

Prince Charles and Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams during Prince Charles’ visit to Galway last week

At the end of her otherwise lyrical piece on Prince Charles’s visit to Galway and the Burren, Miriam Lord concludes on a gratuitously negative and wrong note (“Fields of magic on trip to the Burren”, May 20th).

“As for Mr Adams, he didn’t stay for the speeches after the handshakes. Gerry had his Kodak moment.” Oh Lord.

I did stay. Upstairs. With Martin McGuinness and Trevor Ó Clochartaigh. But maybe Miriam didn’t know. We met privately with Charles and there wasn’t a negative word between us. Just saying. – Is mise,

Leinster House,
Dublin 2.
