Between 20 and 30 young people from the loyalist Mount Vernon estate in North Belfast are crossing the border into the Republic tomorrow for the first time under a special EU Peace Programme project.

The young folk, aged between 16 and 18 years, will visit Drogheda and the Battle of the Boyne site, where a local historian and civic figure will inform them of the history of the site.

The group, which will set off from Mount Vernon Community Hall in Belfast tomorrow at 10am, will be accompanied by trip organiser George Newell and will be addressed at the Boyne site by Drogheda historian and local councillor Sean Collins.
