The Irish Government was not involved in all of the subjects discussed in the cross-party talks that led to the Stormont House Agreement. Its involvement was consistent with the well-established three-stranded approach to Northern Ireland affairs, meaning that the internal arrangements for Northern Ireland are for the UK Government and the Northern Ireland parties alone.
