The Irish have mixed memories of “The Iron Lady” Margaret Thatcher
Britain's first female Prime Minister passes away at the age of 87
President Michael D. Higgins said that as Britain’s first female prime minister, Thatcher’s place in history was secure. He said the policies of her government in regard to Northern Ireland gave rise to considerable debate.
However, her key role in signing the Anglo-Irish Agreement would be recalled as a valuable early contribution to the search for peace and political stability.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny described Thatcher as a “formidable political leader who had a significant impact on British, European and world politics.”
He added, “While her period of office came at a challenging time for British-Irish relations, when the violent conflict in Northern Ireland was at its peak, Mrs. Thatcher signed the Anglo-Irish Agreement which laid the foundation for improved north-south cooperation and ultimately the Good Friday Agreement.”
