Great Britain’s Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, are planning to visit the Sligo area this Summer.

Although the visit has yet to be officially confirmed, local media has stated the visit is expected to include an emotional visit to Mullaghmore - Queen Elizabeth II’s second cousin, Lord Louis Mountbatten, was killed along with one of his twin grandsons, Nicholas, 14; Paul Maxwell, 15, a local employed as a boat boy and Lady Brabourne (83) in an IRA bombing in 1979.

It is also believed that Prince Charles intends to visit Lissadell House.
