Part of the main street which is more than a mile-long was pedestrianised and lined with hundreds of schoolchildren waving Union flags.

The royal couple met with members of the public who had gathered, and were introduced to local businesses people and community members.

They visited Superstars Cafe, a centre that helps train and provide employment for 20 young people with learning difficulties, where they met staff, volunteers and trainees before unveiling a plaque marking the date.

Charles and Camilla are at the start of a four-day visit to the island of Ireland, with the final two days to be spent in the Republic.

They are also due to travel to all the nations in the United Kingdom during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year.
