Down County Museum are pleased to welcome Baroness Ritchie of Downpatrick and Mark Devenport in conversation to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement. Join us as they reflect on their experiences of the Northern Ireland peace process and the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998.

Now a life peer, Margaret Ritchie, Baroness of Downpatrick, was the parliamentary assistant to Eddie McGrady, MP for South Down, during this time. She later went on to serve as a councillor on Down District Council before becoming an MLA and later MP for the area.  Whilst Mark Devenport is the former BBC Northern Ireland Political Editor who covered the peace process and the signing of Good Friday Agreement. He is now a freelance journalist, broadcaster and commentator.

Following their discussion, the floor will be opened to questions from the audience.

Tea and coffee will be provided.
