Political legacy of distrust cannot be wished away, says Donaldson
The distrust between Northern Ireland’s political parties remains a legacy of the conflict and cannot be wished away or ignored, says DUP leader Jeffrey Donaldson. He adds that the events of the Bobby Storey funeral and commemorations of dead members of the Provisional IRA mean that the Troubles remain a continuing source of tension between the largest parties. He was speaking in the latest Holywell Trust Forward Together podcast.
The Holywell Trust Forward Together podcasts are funded by the Community Relations Council’s Media Grant Scheme.
