Yesterday for Northern Ireland is was “a time of peace”, after centuries of conflict, Planter and Gael agree to share power. Did we ever think we’d see the day? It was a long time coming; I was on my honeymoon in Northern Ireland (moored at Lock No.1 on the Shannon-Erne waterway) in 1994 when the first IRA ceasefire was announced, it took another 13 years to get to this situation.
I’m sure there’ll be problems a plenty in the coming years but it’s also clear there’s no turning back the clock, peace is here to stay.
History in the making ….
