In this thought-provoking and engaging book, Malachi O’Doherty argues that division in Northern Ireland is fundamentally not about whether the country should be governed as part of Ireland or as part of Britain – as presumed by the Good Friday Agreement – but rather is entirely sectarian, an inter-ethnic stress comparable to racism.

Part memoir, part history and part polemic, How to Fix Northern Ireland shows how the split between catholics and protestants infests everyday life – from education and segregated housing, from street protests, bonfires and parades to the high politics of power sharing and Brexit – and asks what can be done to solve a centuries-old social rift and heal the relationship at the heart of the problem.
