Modern world study: confict in Ireland

Question 1

Is there sufficient evidence in source D to J to explain why the troubles broke out in Northern Ireland in 1969?

Having studied sources D to J, I do not feel they have provided sufficient evidence to explain why the troubles broke out in Ireland. The sources mainly show how the Protestants disliked each other and the clear divides within their everyday life. There was a lot of conflict and competition between these two groups. In my opinion all the conflict between the two groups led up to the troubles in 1969.

Source D is an adapted extract from B.Devlin's 'the price of my soul' 1969. I think this may contain some sort of evidence as to why the troubles broke out, as it says 'she disliked the English' which suggests that the Irish and the English didn't like each other, which could have been a reason for the troubles breaking out. I think the aim of the source was to show the dislike between the Irish and the English, however the source is only 1 sided.
