The 'Troubles' in Northern Ireland between 1968-1998 is one of the areas studied in GCSE History. One aspect in particular which is looked at is the various attempts that were made to bring about a peace agreement between all the parties concerned. This is the first of two quizzes looking at this subject.
In the absence of any peace agreement between the different parties, the UK government took over responsibility for Northern Ireland in the form of "Direct Rule" in 1972. They were, however, anxious to hand power back to a local executive as soon as possible. They also hoped that such an executive would be able to deal with Northern Ireland's deeper problems and bring peace.
