(p.1) Introduction to Revised Edition
The Long Road to Peace in Northern Ireland

Marianne Elliott


In this new edition of The Long Road to Peace in Northern Ireland former contributors have been given opportunity to add postscripts, two new essays have been commissioned, and the appendices enlarged. Sections of the Opsahl Commission report and Sir George Quigley's Review of the Parades Commission (2002) have also been added, which address the issues of religion, cultural identity, and sectarianism. Despite the return of devolved government to Northern Ireland and signs of former extremes working together harmoniously, the mood is more sombre in these additions than five years ago, reflecting a recognition that the inflated expectations of what the Good Friday Agreement could deliver were unrealistic.

Keywords:   Northern Ireland, peace process, Opsahl Commission, Sir George Quigley, Good Friday Agreement
