IT will not have escaped general notice that Queen Elizabeth is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee over the next couple of days, and over the next few weeks, this jubilee celebration will include various trips around parts of the United Kingdom.

Including, on June 27 and 28, a visit to Northern Ireland, where she will spend time in Belfast and in Enniskillen.

She will meet a number of people from different walks of life, and assorted notable personages from the province: but the question that still hangs in the air is: will she meet Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland Martin McGuinness?
