On This Day in History: 1921, King George V Opens Northern Ireland Parliament

 A recognition that partition in the Island of Ireland was now a fact

In his speech, the King called for reconciliation in the Island of Ireland, it is a call that has sometimes been woefully ignored but is worked on. At this time it is more pertinent than ever as there are fresh calls for a united Ireland and when that will be?

I think another question needs to also be asked, whatever the future of the Island of Ireland, what new ways can be found for different communities to live together in mutual respect
