CSR Issue Statement on the end of the Oglaigh na hEireann Armed Campaign

The Council on Social Responsibility of the Methodist Church in Ireland have issued the following Statement:

"In a few moths we will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement when the people decided in both Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic that that the future of Northern Ireland would no longer be built on terrorism. To this end we welcome the news that Oglaigh na hEireann have brought to an end their armed campaign.

In greeting this announcement we are mindful of their victims dead or alive.
We are thankful for those people who through their quiet and steady work behind the scene have brought us to this place."
