Boris Johnson joins the Queen at Armagh memorial

It is understood that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will attend church mass in Armagh on Thursday to mark the centenary of partition and the founding of Northern Ireland.

Mr Johnson will join Queen Elizabeth at the commemorative celebration organized by the five major Christian churches in Ireland.

Last month, President Michael D. Higgins declined an invitation from the Church Leaders Group because he believed the address was politicized and it would not be appropriate for him to attend.

The Reconciliation and Hope Service will take place at St Patrick’s Irish Cathedral in Armagh, to mark the centenary of the Partition of Ireland and the formation of Northern Ireland.

Secretary of State Simon Coveney and Whip Chief Jack Chambers will represent the government.
