Tuairim, intellectual debate and policy formulation
Manchester University Press

This chapter examines Tuairim's challenge to traditional nationalist attitudes, and its attempts to promote reconciliation between Northern Ireland and Ireland as well as between the two communities within Northern Ireland. It argues that the society influenced southern nationalist attitudes and played a significant role in the debate on the future direction of Northern nationalism but failed to make a noteworthy impact on Unionism. Nevertheless, Tuairim served a valuable purpose in contributing towards a more complete understanding of the divisions on the island; the ideas put forward by the society and its members later formed the basis of the Good Friday Agreement and are thus of continued relevance for the Ireland of today.
