Let’s return now to Newstalk’s 20 most influential moments of the past two decades.

 

We’re looking back at a different moment each day across the station, as chosen by you, the listeners.

 

Today, we’re going back to May 2011, when Queen Elizabeth II visited Ireland, becoming the first British monarch to make an official state visit to Ireland in 100 years.

 

A momentous visit – not least for her stop at Croke Park.

 

Michael Foley Sunday Times reporter and author of The Bloodied Field joined Shane and Ciara to discuss.
