This article lists the major violent and political incidents during The Troubles and peace process in Northern Ireland, from the late 1960s until today.

The duration of the Troubles is conventionally dated from the riots of 1968 to the Good Friday Agreement of 1998. However, sporadic violence continued after this point. Between 14 July 1969 and 31 December 2001, an estimated 3523 people had been killed in the conflict.

Famous quotes containing the words peace, troubles, process, northern and/or ireland:

    Better and safer is an assured peace than a victory hoped for. The one is in your own power, the other is in the hands of the gods.
    Titus Livius (Livy)

    Where troubles melt like lemon drops, away above the chimney tops.
    E.Y. Harburg (1898–1981)

    A man had better starve at once than lose his innocence in the process of getting his bread.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Sophocles long ago
    Heard it on the Aegaean, and it brought
    Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow
    Of human misery; we
    Find also in the sound a thought,
    Hearing it by this distant northern sea.
    Matthew Arnold (1822–1888)

    No people can more exactly interpret the inmost meaning of the present situation in Ireland than the American Negro. The scheme is simple. You knock a man down and then have him arrested for assault. You kill a man and then hang the corpse.
    —W.E.B. (William Edward Burghardt)
