From Civil Rights to the Good Friday Agreement

A Conversation with Eamonn McCann

The 25th anniversary of the Belfast Agreement recently passed not with a bang, but with a whimper. With Stormont again collapsed, few could muster any great enthusiasm to celebrate this milestone. One of the chief critics of the Agreement, and the sectarian structures it enshrined is veteran socialist activist and journalist Eamonn McCann. Seán Mitchell sat down with Eamonn to discuss the Agreement and the conflict which preceded it. An abridged transcript of the conversation has been produced here.
