Thanks!

Meant to add that in earlier tonight when drafting this!

Raises the question though as to how far back does one go to consider an event 'History'?

I think 10 years on a Site is about right so I won't be adding in anything later than that.

The Agreement provided for the establishment of new institutions, across three “Strands”:

An Assembly and Executive within Northern Ireland to exercise partnership government based on equality (Strand I)

A North/South Ministerial Council to develop co-operation and action within the island of Ireland (Strand II)

A British-Irish Council to promote mutually beneficial East/West relationships. (Strand III)
