Undereported: Troubles in Northern Ireland

Thursday, August 23, 2012

Roughly 14 years have passed since the signing of the Good Friday peace accord, which ended decades of bloody conflict in Northern Ireland. But that doesn’t mean the area is free of conflict, tensions and even violence. Jamie Smyth of the Financial Times talks about the situation. His recent article is called "A Peace to Protect."

I was in Belfast for a week back in 2011 and then spent a few days up the Antrim coast. It is a lovely city with nice people and I enjoyed it very much. The explosion that killed the police officer occurred soon after I left... the people there deserve better.
