historic peace talks were held at Government Buildings in 1994 between Taoiseach Albert Reynolds, SDLP Leader John Hume and Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams.

Following the meeting they issued a joint statement in which they said they were totally and absolutely committed to a democratic and peaceful method of resolving the Northern Ireland conflict.

All three leaders addressed the crowd that had gathered outside Government Buildings.
