Glenbryn Protestants and Ardoyne Catholics are represented by politicians who belong to different parties. The Democratic Unionist Party, the Ulster Unionist Party and the Progressive Unionist Party represent the Protestant community at Council and Assembly level. Sinn Fein and the Social Democratic and Labour Party represent the Catholic community at the same forums. Both communities are represented at Westminster by DUP MP Nigel Dodds. Listen to the politicians’ perspectives on the problem.
