Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge are to visit Galway next month as part of their royal visit.
According to the Galway City Tribune, the royal couple will be visiting the City of The Tribes during their trip to Ireland next month.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had announced on Tuesday that they would be visiting Ireland early from March 3rd to March 5th.
This fuelled speculation that the royal couple would be visiting Galway as part of their trip.
Prince William’s father, Prince Charles, had visited the city in 2015 with his wife Camilla.
It has been reported that the couple will be visiting Tigh Chóilí on Maingaurd street as well as Salthill-Knocknacarra GAA Club.
However, a spokesperson for Salthill-Knocknacarra GAA Club told Galway Pulse that they hadn’t been made aware of any plans.
The Gardaí had issued notice yesterday that Williamsgate Street, William Street, Shop Street, High Street, Mainguard Street and possibly Abbeygate Street will be closed between 6am and 2pm on March 5 – facilitating the security operation required for the visit.
A spokesperson for Kensington Palace told the City Tribune that further details about the visit were to be announced in the coming days.
