Archive: Ian Paisley gives a musket to Taoiseach Bertie Ahern

The Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern helped to renegotiate Northern Ireland's peace process in 2007, and as a token of appreciation the late First Minister Ian Paisley presented him with a musket used during the 1690 Battle of the Boyne.

As our archive footage shows, Mr Paisley presented Mr Ahern with the gift at the St Andrews Agreement talks as they visited the site of the Battle of the Boyne.
