Twenty years since the Anglo Irish Agreement

Twenty years since the Anglo Irish Agreement Probably the last time Sinn Fein and Unionists of all strands agreed on a substantive political issue was their implacable opposition to the Anglo Irish Agreement, though for quite different reasons. Unionists felt their government had let them down by giving the Republic’s government a consultative role. Harold McCusker (sound file) was thought never to have recovered from it, until his tragically early death five years later.
