Two soldiers and a policeman have been murdered in Northern Ireland in the past few days. It’s brought a shock to the province which—in the most part—has enjoyed peace since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, that led to power-sharing. The murders have been claimed by two Republican splinter groups—the so-called Continuity IRA, and the Real IRA—who are both against the peace process.

Seasoned Northern Ireland watcher Kevin Cullen at the Boston Globe discusses the significance of what’s happening in Northern Ireland, and how this story is being viewed by Irish Americans in Boston. John Hockenberry hosts from Boston.
