Media marks first Parliament’s centenary

BBC News NI correspondent Mark Simpson has been covering events connected to the centenary of the establishment of Northern Ireland. He visited the College last week in order to find out more about the College’s role in hosting the first Parliament from 1921-1932 and what the College was like at the time. Mark examined some of the Library documents from the time, including letters from Sir James Craig to the College Trustees, and has written an article about some of his findings.
