Respect is the key to progress, Northern Ireland’s First Minister said last night in a speech celebrating the role of the GAA in peace building.

In a speech at the Co-operation Ireland gala dinner at Queen’s University, Peter Robinson praised the body for taking “significant decisions” in helping shape the changing Northern Ireland.

However he also warned that “it is also wrong to honour and extol” those who participated in terrorism both now and in the past.
