20th Anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement

The Good Friday Agreement has played a very significant role in creating peace on the island of Ireland since it was ratified in May 1998.

To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Department of Education and Skills organised a unique competition for schools, based on the theme of ‘20 Years of Peace and Reconciliation on the island of Ireland’.

Entries were to be of a creative nature so the children worked collaboratively to designed and create the following poster:
