Still a long way to go….

Filed under: Ireland — John Maass @ 7:15 pm

From the Irish Examiner:

Protestant and Catholic children in the North are living parallel and separate lives divided along sectarian lines 10 years on from the second IRA ceasefire, a survey confirmed today.

A poll of 667 children chosen randomly from 35 schools across the North showed Protestants were more likely to define themselves as British and Catholics more likely to see themselves as Irish.

Encouragingly however, around half of Catholic children and around half of Protestants were happy to be labelled as “Northern Irish”.
