Good Friday Agreement responsible for huge economic growth says Ibec

Good Friday Agreement has worked for everyone on the Island of Ireland for the last 25 years. Everyone on the Island wants it to work for another 25

February 9, 2023

The huge economic growth across the island of Ireland during the past 25 years would not have been possible without the Good Friday Agreement.

That’s according to Ibec, which is appearing before an Oireachtas committee today.

The business group says there has been record levels of investment across the island and Britain.

Fergal O’Brien, Ibec’s director of lobbying and influence, says the Good Friday Agreement delivered prosperity to the island of Ireland…

Good Friday Agreement responsible for huge economic growth says Ibec

In spite of the DUP

All because a Catholic is FM, hatred and bigotry and bloody childish tantrums…

they have always tried to undermine the GFA and now the protocol they brought about, hopefully this will show once and for all the destruction they will bring to remain in dominance and line their own pockets

Hopefully everyone will see Lynne, they’re dragging us all backwards

The British government are trying to remove our Irish rights under the GFA to claim our citizenship as Irish citizens in the North of Ireland

“An eligible Irish citizen is someone who was born in Northern Ireland, who is an Irish citizen and also qualifies as a British citizen (whether or not they identify themselves as such)” Significant changes are being quietly made to citizenship & identity in NI.

The British Government’s attack on the birthright provisions of the GFA has gone up a level with these changes. Make no mistake, they are taking the October 14th ruling, that the people of NI are British citizens even if they identify as Irish & making seismic changes.

The DUP does not and never has from day one supported the Good Friday Agreement (GFA)

we will making commitments in the forthcoming Alliance manifesto re addressing the failings highlighted in your case. We will keep pushing both governments to ensure GFA is properly reflected in law.

Border poll will be won by nationalists

Brexit risks all of the progress that has been made and also risks the potential change that the Good Friday Agreement promised in terms of a society based on equality and parity of esteem – ie rights – and a pathway to a new independent Ireland.

FOR centuries the rights and interests of the people of this country, nationalists and unionists, have been subject to the interests of the British government, irrespective of the collateral damaged caused to the people here.

The Good Friday Agreement (GFA) was supposed to be the beginning of a new era where both the North of Ireland was the shared responsibility of the Irish and British governments and free of the malign and prejudiced influence of the British government. The GFA promised all-Ireland institutions with expanding horizons and equality and parity of esteem between the people of the North. Much has changed since the introduction of the GFA and Ireland has changed for the better on many fronts.

But Brexit risks all of the progress that has been made and also risks the potential change that the GFA promised in terms of a society based on equality and parity of esteem – ie rights – and a pathway to a new independent Ireland. Brexit has introduced, through the front door, a double veto over that promised by the GFA, the dead hand of the DUP in collaboration with the Tories and fanatical Brexiteers, in the ERG. Due to the Brexit needs of the British government, the DUP – which is a minority voice – has had its status and influence elevated to the point where it is effectively running the British government’s Brexit policy.

Before Brexit, the DUP had effectively blocked the full implementation of the GFA and created an immovable unionist veto inside the North’s institutions – immovable because of the failure of the British government, to act. The North’s institutions were doomed long before the heating scandal (RHI) led to their collapse. Since the collapse of the institutions the situation has deteriorated to the point where the DUP’s influence, through Brexit, is set to damage, not just northern society in terms of its economy and people’s rights, but the economy of the rest of this country. Northern nationalists – ever mindful of the limitions placed on their national and cultural rights by the confines of a unionist dominated state – have moved to achieve their rights beyond the six counties and are now begaining to shape a new political framework, within an all-Island setting, with the Irish government the principal focus and with the primary objective being reunification.

That is what ‘Ireland’s Future’ conference in Waterfront Hall publicly signalled. The context of the shift was the realisation by northern nationalists, after 10 years of government, that the DUP was opposed to power-sharing and fully working, to their maximum, the all-Ireland institutions of the GFA. In fact, the DUP was using the institutions to block progress, including the modernisation of northern society on human rights issues such as access to the truth for grieving relatives, marriage equality, abortion reform, an Irish language act, Irish citizenship and a Bill of Rights.

The shift was also influenced by a new and younger nationalist middle class who had experienced the war years; had been politicised by their experience, we’re confident and assertive and seeking, not a reformed north, but a new independent Ireland, where a reformed north could have an institutional place in a transitional arrangement. The first signs of the shift were the north’s nationalist electorate turning its back on Westminster and voting for Sinn Féin abstentionist MPs. The other element, in my view, the most crucial in the shift is the reality that nationalists will be a voting majority in the not too distant future and under the terms of the GFA could vote for a United Ireland in a border poll.

But shifts are not confined to the nationalist population. Brexit is impacting on the broad unionist community as well. We saw that in 2016 when a section of unionists voted with nationalists to Remain in the EU and a few months later stayed at home resulting in the unionist parties losing their majority in the north’s assembly for the first time in 100 yeas.

Add into this fast-evolving situation the possibility of a Jeremy Corbyn-led government in Downing Street after the next election and we have the ingredients for a transition to a new independent Ireland triggered by Corbyn implementing the GFA in all its parts, including a provision for a unity/border poll.
