Abstract: "The Good Friday Agreement was signed 24 years ago this week, relationships north-south and east-west are evolving and changing. In this context, what are the issues that are relevant and to be considered as we think of our future? The Detail is publishing a series of articles which will explore daily cross-border activity on the island of Ireland. The former editor of the Impartial Reporter newspaper, Denzil McDaniel, introduced the series while below, in the second of our stories, Luke Butterly examines how cultural programmes have strengthened cross-border relationships since the Good Friday Agreement.

“All the windows were blown out at the front, a few at the side. The windows at the front were 16 feet high and covered two floors,” says Catherine McCullough, a museum expert who worked there at the time..." and article continues on cross-border museum projects.
