UPF Ireland Peace Road Forum 2019 - "Global Family - Local Harmony"

"Is there a Role for Faith in Modern Ireland"

Report by Colm Ó Cionnaith, Sec-Gen UPF Ireland

DOWNPATRICK, Co. Down, “The Home of Saint Patrick” - a Briton who became Ireland’s most revered and patron saint, was the venue for the the 4th annual UPF Ireland Peace Road Walk and 2nd annual Forum on Sunday, 22nd September.

The morning’s events in the picturesque Ulster town commenced as interfaith ‘pilgrims’ arrived from the four provinces of Ireland, braving their way through stormy conditions and made their way up the short hilly walk of Slieve Patrick, just outside Downpatrick. The Heaven’s smiled as dark rain clouds receded to a beautiful soft mist and on reaching the summit, participants were treated to a breath-taking view of the region, with Strangford loch visible through the encroaching mist, as well as views of the Isle of Man and Carlingford in Co. Louth, in the Republic (the location of the previous years’ Peace Road Forum).

Keener eyes might have even been able to spot the coastline of Scotland if they had focused a little harder on the majestic horizon! It is easy to see how a future bridge or tunnel could connect the nearby Donaghadee to Scotland if the will and the finances could be found to extend Rev. Moon’s vision of the World Highway ‘Peace Road’ to our island and no doubt bring great prosperity and trade to the region and to our celtic cousins, Scotland.

This might also help us to feel more united if a post-Brexit world becomes a reality. Time will tell whether or not this oft-mooted possibility becomes reality.

2018 PEACE ROAD WALK & FORUM: BREXIT CHALLENGE TO PEACE PROCESS

Report by Colm Ó Cionnaith, Sec-Gen UPF Ireland

CARLINGFORD, Co. Louth, 9 Sept 2018 - The border region of Ireland, which could in a short period of time become a new western frontier between the EU and the United Kingdom played host to an important new initiative from UPF Ireland: the Peace Road Forum.

Peace Road Events have been held through the world, from island to island cycles in Japan to the two previous events in Ireland, the addition of the inaugural 'Forum' this year was a challenge set by the local UPF chapter in order to boost it's profile and give a 'kick-start' for future development and expansion.

The day's events started with the 3rd annual morning event: a walk around the famous 'Battle of the Boyne' battlefield. Heaven smiled on the 'peace walkers' as the sun shone down on us at the beautiful Oldbridge Estate, Co. Meath, in the backdrop the restored stately home which hosts the historical centre, one of the many fruits of the successful Peace Process, a symbol of the new Ireland, where sectarian and political conflict is thankfully a thing of the past and visitors are reminded of some of the origins of much of the 'troubles.'
