Memories – 20 years ago – Peace Process on a 'knife edge'

Politics

THE Peace process was described yesterday as “on a knife edge” by Conservative MP, Peter Temple Morris, when visiting Limerick.

He was one of the steering committee of the British Irish Parliamentary body hosted by Mayor Jim Kemmy at City Hall. There was major security around the city for yesterday’s visit of British politicians.

The 50 member body which also includes deputies Des O’Malley and Peadar Clohessy were in the city to plan their three day meeting in Adare Manor at the end of April.

The important step now, according to Mr Temple Morris “is getting the show back on the road.” “Everybody on the road has to behave as if they have a destination to get to,” he added. 

He thanked Mayor Kemmy for his invitation to visit City Hall and said the group were looking forward to their meeting in Adare.
