"Protestant or Catholic?"
The so-called Troubles of Northern Ireland were settled by the Good Friday Agreement of 1999. It put an end to the rift between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland and resulted in an agreement which was made between the British and Irish governments and eight political parties or groupings from Northern Ireland: the Ulster Unionist Party, the Social Democratic and Labour Party, Sinn Féin, the Alliance Party, the Progressive Unionist Party, the Northern Ireland Women’s Coalition, the Ulster Democratic Party and Labour.
The repercussions of the Troubles, however, are still to be felt today when recently the leader of the Sein Finn party (Catholic) was summoned before a N.I. court, where he had to give witnees on on incident in which he supposedly was involved.
