Dublin meeting northerners

June 19, 1992|By New York Times News Service

DUBLIN, Ireland -- The government confirmed that for the first time since 1973, its representatives will meet with officials of both Catholic and Protestant political parties from Northern Ireland.

The meeting, to be held today in London, will be the first between the Protestant-dominated parties and the Irish government since talks by moderate Unionists and Dublin at Sunningdale, England, in 1973. The Protestant parties insist that the province remain united to Britain.
