Troubles have impacted on all of Ireland

Published 12/11/2013

THERE has been a huge psychological impact of the Troubles on people all over the island of Ireland.

It is not just confined to Northern Ireland; people in the south felt the effects of the Troubles just as much as the people in the north. We watched it decade after decade, murder after murder, massacre after massacre. It crushed the soul to watch what was – and could still be – an inextricable problem.

Northern Ireland is a patient in a long-stay hospital that desperately needs to be discharged.
