The Good Friday Agreement happened 20 years ago in Northern Ireland, which brought structure and cohesion to the British and Irish governments and political parties. 20 years on, the key figures who were involved in the process, gathered at Queen’s University to celebrate the success that it had all those years ago, and continues to have today.
Chair of the talks and former US Special Envoy for Northern Ireland, Senator George J. Mitchell will be joined by former President of the United States Bill Clinton, Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Tony Blair, Bertie Ahern, Jonathan Powell, Gerry Adams and Lord David Trimble as well as a number of other key players.
I was lucky enough to be around and catch the special event and wangled my way into the press pit. What a day that was!
