Ian Paisley        1926-2014

 

Northern Irelandís

firebrand Protestant leader

who vowed never to compromise

with Irish Catholic nationalists,

then, in his twilight, accepted

a power-sharing agreement

that envisioned

a new era of peace in Ulster

after decades

of sectarian violence

 

(...)

 

The day many thought

would never come

arrived in Belfast

on May 8, 2007.

 

Mr. Paisley, founder

of the Democratic Unionist party,

which sought continued

association with Britain,

and Martin McGuinness,

a Sinn Fein leader

and former commander

of the Irish Republican Army,

which had fought

for a united Ireland,

shook hands and took oaths

as the leader and deputy leader,

respectively, of Ulsterís

power-sharing government.

 

As Prime Ministers

Tony Blair of Britain

and Bertie Ahern of Ireland

looked on,

the proceedings ended

British governance

and reinstated home-rule

in Belfast.

 

It bridged the chasm

between Mr. Paisley

and Gerry Adams,

the I.R.A. leader

who had negotiated

the agreement.

 

And it relegated

to the past a civil war,

known as the Troubles,

that had raged

from the 1960s

into the 1990s

and cost 3,700 lives.
