Northern Ireland

"We must not allow our justified loathing of the horrors and tragedies of the past to become a barrier to creating a better and more stable future." - the Reverend Ian Paisley.

In a historic moment for Northern Ireland the Reverend Ian Paisley and Gerry Adams have agreed to go into government together. The man who said "no surrender" has seen Republicans grant all his demands for an end to violence and an acceptance of the policing in Northern Ireland.

Gavin Esler is at Stormont and will be talking to some of the key players about how this agreement came about and our new political editor Michael Crick looks back on the years of troubles when such an agreement seemed unthinkable.

If there is anything you want to know about the deal then let us know and we'll make sure Gavin tries to answer it.
