(p.124) Hillsborough to Belfast: Is It the Final Lap?1
The Long Road to Peace in Northern Ireland

Sir David Goodall


This chapter traces the beginnings of the current peace process back as far as the Anglo–Irish Agreement of 1985 — the Hillsborough Agreement. It compares that Agreement with the one reached at Belfast on Good Friday 1998 and considers in what directions further progress was needed before one could begin to talk with confidence about a ‘settlement’ of the Irish question having been achieved.

Keywords:   settlement, Irish question, peace process, Good Friday Agreement, Hillsborough Agreement
