Historic visit to Croker makes me very proud

As a very patriotic Irish woman I wasn't sure how I felt about the queen's visit but after hearing Christy Cooney's speech in Croke Park, I don't think I've ever been as proud to be Irish.

The hair literally stood on the back of my neck and I must admit a few tears were shed.

I understand how people who have lost loved ones through the Troubles may not be happy about the visit but I really despair when I see young people of this generation on the streets protesting.
