“Street disturbances and the hugely divisive marching season combined to turn up the temperature on the sectarian front – those tensions being much more evident after the worst of the troubles had gone. There is also a core assumption in the agreement that once in government, trust would build between old political enemies. Not only did that not happen, it got gradually worse.”
