Queen visits Irish National stud farm in Kildare
The Queen has been shown around the Irish National Stud horsebreeding centre on the third day of her historic visit to the Republic of Ireland.
She unveiled a statue marking her visit, met jockeys and others involved in racing, and was shown stud horses at the centre in Kildare, west of Dublin.
Irish agriculture minister Simon Coveney said the Queen's trip had now entered a "more relaxing" phase.
