Westlife and Byrne for royal event

Westlife and X Factor star Mary Byrne are among the headline acts to be confirmed for the Queen's first official visit to Ireland.

Two thousand guests have been invited to a special ceremony during the British monarch's trip, with Irish President Mary McAleese set to be the guest of honour at the event on May 19.

Chart-toppers Westlife and former supermarket worker Mary are on the bill for the evening, which organisers have described as "a roll call of the best of Irish entertainment".

Ambassador to Ireland Julian King is to host the so-called "return event" - an evening of fashion, music and theatre at the Dublin Convention Centre in the city's docklands.

"This is the first State Visit to Ireland, our closest neighbour," the Ambassador said.

"We wanted to mark this historic occasion, and to reflect the huge support and interest there has been in this visit."

He added: "We have put together a programme that showcases the best of British and Irish fashion, and brings together on one stage some of the finest performers working in Ireland today.

"It promises to be a memorable occasion, an opportunity to celebrate the Queen's visit, but also the love of music, the spoken word, fashion, and design that people from across our two countries share."

The return event is standard practice during a State tour when the visiting country arranges a special occasion for the host country. The evening is expected to be shown live on RTE television.
