TODAY IN IRISH HISTORY

1854: Literary genius, raconteur, wit and tragic character Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin. This image of Oscar Wilde appears in For the Love of Being Irish

1963: Taoiseach Sean Lemass visited the White House and met with JFK.

1998: John Hume and David Trimble awarded Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel Foundation award the Nobel Peace Prize for 1998 to John Hume and David Trimble for their efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Northern Ireland.

“Over the past thirty years, the national, religious and social conflict in Northern Ireland has cost over 3,500 people their lives. John Hume has throughout been the clearest and most consistent of Northern Ireland’s political leaders in his work for a peaceful solution. The foundations of the peace agreement signed on Good Friday 1998 reflect principles which he has stood for.

As the leader of the traditionally predominant party in Northern Ireland, David Trimble showed great political courage when, at a critical stage of the process, he advocated solutions which led to the peace agreement. As the head of the Northern Ireland government, he has taken the first steps towards building up the mutual confidence on which a lasting peace must be based.”
