This chapter traces the events and factors that lead to the signing of the Anglo-Irish Agreement of 1985 and to the Good Friday Agreement and the consequences that surrounds them. In 1985, sixty years after it was first drafted, the Anglo-Irish Agreement was signed by both Britain and the Republic of Ireland and it gave Dublin rights in Northern Ireland. The agreement incited a long-term protest from unionists. Thirteen years after the signing of the Anglo-Irish Agreement, a new peace treaty named the Good Friday Agreement was created. The chapter concludes with a personal narration regarding the victims of violence.
