IRA declares end of Operations, Northern Ireland

Thursday, 28 July, 2005

The IRA had announced the renewal of its 1994 ceasefire effective from 20 July 1997 and then on 28 July 2005, announced the end of its campaign, promising complete decommissioning of all its weapons. This was part of the Northern Ireland peace process that lead to the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement of 1998, although the process in itself continues.
