It has been confirmed that Britain's Prince Charles and his wife Camilla are returning to Ireland this week.

The couple will visit Cork and Kerry on June 14th and 15th.

The visit will start in Cork city where a number of engagements will take place throughout the city.

The pair will jointly visit the English Market, which was previously visited by Queen Elizabeth II in 2011.

On Thursday, the couple will also visit University College Cork (UCC) where Prince Charles will meet students and faculty members.

He will also visit the National Maritime College of Ireland and go on board an Irish Navy Service vessel to showcase the close maritime links between the two nations.

Camilla will visit a local refuge, which serves women and children who have suffered domestic violence, a cause that she has worked to highlight in the UK and overseas.

She will also visit the Irish National Guide Dogs Training Centre.

On Friday, they will travel to Co Kerry to visit Derrynane House, the ancestral home of Daniel O'Connell, and watch a performance at Siamsa Tíre.
