Though originally 3 4 See also by Nairn: After Britain (2000) and The Break-Up of Britain (1977). htm (accessed 20/02/2010). RENARRATING IRISH POLITICS IN A EUROPEAN CONTEXT 51 deriving from Catholic social philosophy, the concept of subsidiarity has, of course, assumed its own special significance (beyond all denominational or confessional partisanship) in both the aspirational and actual exercise of power in the European parliament and by extension, in the increasing provisions for regional, subnational decision-making.

And Ricoeur adds this critical point: ‘The ability to recount the founding events of our national history in different ways is reinforced by the exchange of cultural memories. This ability to exchange has as a touchstone the will to share symbolically and respectfully in the commemoration of the founding events of other national cultures, as well as those of their ethnic minorities and their minority religious denominations’ (2006: 9). This point applies as much to events of pain and trauma (like those commemorated in Irish Famine or First World War memorials for example) as to events of triumph and glory.

It is not difficult to see how Ricoeur’s European ethos of narrative exchange relates to the Irish-British context. What he is basically suggesting is that ‘if the end of art is peace’, as Seamus Heaney suggests, then politics will always need to be supplemented by culture. And culture here must be understood as both an ethics of historical judgment and a poetics of narrative fantasy. And the latter demands that we widen the frame of British-Irish hurt, inflamed by a long history of sovereignty neurosis, to include an exchange of narratives with the other communities of Europe to which we have always belonged and which we are now re-acknowledging as we move towards closer and deeper reintegration.
