|Title:||The Sunningdale Communiqué, 1973, and bipartisanship in the Republic of Ireland||Authors:||O'Donnell, Catherine||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/2394||Date:||2007||Abstract:||This paper examines the political debates in the Republic of Ireland surrounding the publication of the Sunningdale communiqué in December 1973. It highlights the level of division that existed at that time on issues related to the communiqué and Northern Ireland generally between the government parties, Fine Gael and Labour, and Fianna Fáil. It demonstrates the limited nature of bipartisanship towards Northern Ireland at that time despite statements to the contrary.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||University College Dublin.
