When the Good Friday Agreement was signed in 1998, those involved believed they had brought about peace in Northern Ireland. In 2007, the Democratic Unionists and Sinn Fein entered government together. Although the British and Irish governments believed the Peace Process was complete, this essay shows that peace-building work is still needed to heal the sectarian divisions within society.
