Putting NI at the centre

The poet Peter Makem suggests that the institutions established under the Belfast Agreement need to be able to grow organically rather than be pushed into boxes of others’ convenience:

“In other words, Northern Ireland must work to become the centre of the new Ireland, a centre of Europe, of everywhere, and no longer a limb of anywhere. Otherwise we have only moved from the jungle of night into the desert of day.”
