"DUP should welcome EU Peace funding" - Bairbre de Brun

Although, MEP DUP Jim Allister said at first that the EU Peace funding were on 'probation', he finally encouraged Unionists to apply for the new scheme of grants. However, SF MEP Bairbre de Brun said :"The DUP welcome for the additional funding announced last week seems to fly in the face of their efforts since 1994 and before to scupper the development of the peace process and their continuing opposition to the Good Friday Agreement which it produced. They should draw the obvious conclusions from welcoming the PEACE II extension and embrace the peace process also."
