In 2008 Tony wrote an independent discussion paper, ‘A Process for Removing Interface Barriers’, to stimulate discussion about the sort of process that needs to be put in place to make it safe enough for the peace walls to come down in Northern Ireland.

It’s a completely independent paper. It wasn’t commissioned or funded by any organisation. It is a personal contribution to stimulate discussion based on Tony's experiences of living and working on the peacelines.

In 2009 Tony provided voluntary support to the 'Up Against the Wall' initiative which supported children and young people living in interface areas to have their voice heard on the future of the barriers between their communities. The initiative included a series of youth led activities on 9th November 2009, to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Click here for more information.
