Power-sharing proof of commitment to peace

MONDAY’S historic breakthrough in Stormont is very welcome.

The presence of both the Taoiseach and the British prime minister is evidence of the commitment throughout these islands for a new era of peace.

It was also a tribute to the vision of Dr Brendan O’Regan, who founded the cross-border peace-building charity Co-operation Ireland in 1979.

We hope we can now move quickly in partnership with the Irish Government to establish a North-South consultative committee, tackle outstanding issues, and promote North-South social and economic cohesion.

We also hope for the establishment of more North-South budgets and infrastructure and a clear political framework for successful social partnerships.
