Dr Sean Brady welcomes IRA peace statement
Comment Email Print
¬†Dr SeŠn Brady, Archbishop of Armagh and Primate of All Ireland, has issued the following statement in response to Friday's declaration by the IRA that it is giving up violence. Every word and deed that helps to foster peace is to be welcomed. In that spirit I warmly welcome today's very clear and significant statement by the IRA. I hope that the IRA will not only deliver on its declared commitment to end its armed campaign but also accompany this historic declaration with the kind of actions that will build trust, inspire confidence and encourage a positive response from others. Were that to happen I am convinced that today's developments represent a unique opportunity to enhance the progress of recent years and to construct a shared and secure future for all, built on new relationships of respect and understanding. I also hope that the moment is near when all paramilitary groups will decide to banish forever the threat of violence. Peace is never achieved once and for all but has to be constantly fostered by everyone in our society. I hope that today will encourage everyone to continue that search for a lasting peace.
