“building a shared future that is not overshadowed by the events of the past”

Having consulted with some interested parties [but not necessarily all interested parties – Ed] the Eames/Bradley group are now looking for contributions from the public. They also have a new website [under construction, natch – Ed]. The Belfast Telegraph provides the contact details – Written submissions can be sent to the secretary to the group, 20 Adelaide Street, Belfast, BT2 8GD or by email to secretary[at]cgpni[dot]org And from the Irish Times [subs req]

“Working together we can help ensure that we move towards a society that has not forgotten the past but, equally, does not allow it to be a barrier to a shared future. If you or your group have a perspective on the past, the lessons to be learned, and, importantly, suggestions on the steps that might be taken to support Northern Ireland society in the future, we would urge you to make those views known to us.”

The group is hoping to issue recommendations by the summer of next year “on steps that might be taken to support Northern Ireland society in building a shared future that is not overshadowed by the events of the past”.

Here’s a suggestion, again – Take the bull by the horns. And the sooner the better.

Otherwise..
