Irish President Mary McAleese, the country's second — and consecutive — female president, greets Queen Elizabeth in Dublin today. The queen is the first UK monarch to visit Ireland since 1911, following the country's bitter war for independence. Security is tight for the historic visit; police have already subverted a planned bomb attack and downtown Dublin is virtually a car-free zone. See more photos of the queen sporting her Irish green, as well as the protests, now.
