On May 20th 2015, we were delighted to welcome Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall on their historic visit to Mullaghmore.
The visit was highly significant attracting national and international attention.
It was also a poignant one for the Prince - who had lost his great-Uncle Lord Mountbatten in the terrorist attack in 1979, in which three others, including his grandson and a local boy, were tragically killed.
The Royal couple wished to visit our Peace Garden on their arrival to show their commitment to peace. There, they were warmly greeted both by locals and friends of the Mountbattens from the area.
They were also presented with a gift - a beautiful oil painting of the coast at Mullaghmore.
Afterwards, the Royal couple walked through the village and were given a wonderful reception,
The visit was a joyful day for Mullaghmore, and we pray that it will help towards peace and reconciliation on these islands.
