Prince Charles Celebrates 50 Years Of Ulster University’s Coleraine Campus

1 Mins read

The Prince of Wales has visited Ulster University’s Coleraine campus this week to help celebrate its 50th year.

His visit marks the first of many events set to celebrate the foundation which began in 1968.

It would appear Prince Charles received quite a welcome as university staff, council members and Ulster University choir were all on hand to greet the Prince of Wales upon his arrival, which was via helicopter.

And he wasn’t the only guest of honour to be invited to the celebrations.

The mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens, Brenda Chivers and Manchester United legend, Harry Gregg, were also in attendance.

As reported by the BBC (online), Mr Gregg praised Prince Charles for his visit and said he was very knowledgeable about his foundation which is based at the university.

During his campus visit, Prince Charles was escorted to meet some of the sports organisations within the university and from the surrounding area, including Coleraine Strikers FC.

This local football team is made up of children with disabilities who have a passion for the game.

The Prince of Wales was also taught about the history of the university, which has campuses situated in four different areas of Northern Ireland.

He was also informed of the university’s plans for the future and current projects, including a new sports complex, and Northern Ireland’s first Enterprise Zone involving the local council working with the campus.

And it would seem that Prince Charles visit to Northern Ireland has seen him attending many other interesting events too.

He has been treated to a concert performed by the Ulster Orchestra which included opera and songs from the great Ulster songbook.

And to wash the various celebrations down, the Prince of Wales has also been gifted with craft beer and raw milk cheese, produced by County Down cows.
