A Tragedy of Errors
Liverpool University Press

This chapter traces Irish involvement in the development of the political structure in the developmental stage of the Government of Ireland. It shows how the Irish underestimated the magnitude and the duration of the unionist subversion to the Agreement. Despite the fact that the British and Irish held regular meetings, the unionist community wafted away from its nationalist neighbors and the British government who failed to represent unionist interests. The chapter also introduces John Hume who had a huge influence over the policies of successive British and Irish Government.

Keywords:   political structure, developmental stage, unionist community, British government, Irish government, John Hume
