(Reuters) - Queen Elizabeth is to travel to Ireland this year in the first official visit by a British monarch since before the Irish state gained independence from British rule in 1921.
No date or itinerary was given for the state visit, announced on Friday by Buckingham Palace and Irish President Mary McAleese.
The 84-year-old queen will be accompanied on the visit by her husband, Prince Philip.
The last British monarch to visit Ireland was King George V, who went in 1911.
