U-S Senator Edward Kennedy visited Northern Ireland on Friday and made an appeal to negotiators in the region's peace process to unify against those who oppose it.

Kennedy, on his first visit to the British-run province, delivered a speech in Londonderry, where riots in 1969 provoked Britain to deploy troops to Northern Ireland.

His plea came the same day the Ulster Democratic Party - political wing of one of the Protestant guerrilla groups who met earlier with Northern Ireland Secretary Mo Mowlam at Belfast's Maze prison - ultimately agreed to attend peace talks in Belfast next week.

The American senator made the trip despite the death of his nephew, Michael Kennedy, after a skiing accident on New Year's Eve.

Senator Edward Kennedy made his first-ever visit to Northern Ireland on Friday.

And a plea for peace in the region between Protestants and Catholics was his message.

He and John Hume, leader of the Social Democratic and Labour Party, met with the families of Catholic victims of Bloody Sunday.

Kennedy, accompanied by his wife, shook hands with the relatives who had gathered.

The member of one of America's most famous political families stuck to his travel schedule despite the death of his nephew, Michael Kennedy, in a skiing accident on New Year's Eve.

The same day of Kennedy's trip, some progress in Northern Ireland's peace talks was made.

Protestant militants in Belfast's Maze prison were visited earlier by Britain's Northern Ireland Secretary, Mo Mowlam, in an attempt to draw them to the side of peace.

Later on Friday, the Ulster Democratic Party - political wing for one of the two loyalist guerrilla groups who met with Mowlam - said it would attend Monday's peace talks in Belfast.

Kennedy was hoping by his visit to do his part to encourage cooperation.

The Democratic legislator planned to visit Derry City Wall, a 17th-century stone wall which has come to symbolise the religious strife in Londonderry.

Every August, Catholics gather at the wall to try to stop Protestants from marching in commemoration of Londonderry's victory over a Catholic siege attempt in 1689.

But Kennedy's main stop was Guildhall, the same venue for U-S President Bill Clinton's visit in 1995.

Kennedy came to deliver a lecture to plead for peace to an audience made up of church and town leaders from both of the Catholic and Protestant faiths.

In his speech, the United States senator called for both sides in the deep-seated conflict to work through their centuries of mistrust.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"Today we stand at a defining moment in the modern epic of this island. The talks that are about to resume offer both a challenge and an opportunity. In the coming crucial weeks, the parties will determine whether this is a genuine way forward or just another failed station on the way of sorrows."

SUPER CAPTION: Edward Kennedy, U-S Senator (D-Massachusetts)

He denounced those who seem determined to derail negotiations at what he said was a defining moment in history to achieve a lasting peace.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"There are some who seek to wreck the peace process. They're blinded by fear of a future they cannot imagine, a future in which respect for differences is a healing and unifying force. They are driven by an anger that holds no respect for life - even for the lives of children."

SUPER CAPTION: Edward Kennedy, U-S Senator (D-Massachusetts)

Kennedy urged all those involved in the peace talks to take their place in history by seizing the opportunity before them.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"Taking full advantage of this unique opportunity will bring lasting peace and a genuine place in history for all those who make it happen. Failure to grasp this opportunity will be devastating. History will harshly judge any who fail the test and waste the decisive moment."

SUPER CAPTION: Edward Kennedy, U-S Senator (D-Massachusetts)

The U-S legislator, who is of Irish Catholic descent, reached out to both Catholics and Protestants who have suffered during years of bloody conflict.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"Families - Protestant and Catholic - have been denied the bodies of loved ones to bury. Families like those whose loved ones were killed on Bloody Sunday have been denied the truth. Families like those whose loved ones died at Enniskillen have been denied justice. Families enduring generations of unemployment have been denied opportunity. Families harassed by security forces have been denied dignity. Families, victims of punishment beatings have been denied justice. Children - Catholic and Protestant - have been denied their future. It is time to say enough is enough is enough is enough. It is time to replace hate with hope."

SUPER CAPTION: Edward Kennedy, U-S Senator (D-Massachusetts)

Townspeople presented Kennedy with a yellowed copy of the Irish Times showing a front page story of a Northern Ireland visit by his brother, U-S President John F. Kennedy.

In Londonderry, Kennedy planned to visit both Catholic and Protestant sections of the divided city.

Kennedy is scheduled to spend two days in Northern Ireland before traveling south to spend another two in the Irish Republic.

STORYLINE:

On August 25th 2009 Senetor Edward "Ted" Moore Kennedy died at his home in Hyannis Port aged 77. Kennedy had been suffering from brain cancer and his death came two weeks after the death of his sister Eunice.

Edward M. Kennedy was laid to rest on August 29th alongside brothers John and Robert on hallowed ground at Arlington National Cemetery.

Crowds lined the streets of two cities on a day that marked the end of an American political era, outside Kennedy's funeral in rainy Boston where he was eulogised by US President Barack Obama, and later in the day in Washington.

Row upon row of mourners sat facing the casket bearing Kennedy's mortal remains at his funeral service held in the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Boston.

The two-hour service was filled with references to Kennedy's political accomplishments and personal recollections of his private life.

Obama delivered a eulogy and called the late senator a "kind and tender hero".

Ted Kennedy Jr. paid tribute to his father by saying that his death was not a time for sadness, despite the senator's unfinished work, but a time to celebrate all that he had accomplished.

After the service, the funeral cortege left Boston for Washington DC, where Kennedy's hearse stopped for the last time outside the Senate, where he served for 47 years.

Edward Kennedy was the Lion of the Senate. With a congressional career spanning 46 years and a nearly unmatched record of legislative achievements, Senator Kennedy was considered a true American political icon.

Presidential historian Allan Lichtman said Kennedy "is right up in the Pantheon of the half dozen greatest Senators in the history" of the United States.

Edward Moore Kennedy was elected US Senator from Massachusetts in 1962, to finish the term of his brother, then-President John F. Kennedy.

At just 30 years old, he was the third Kennedy brother to enter into government service. His brother Robert F. Kennedy was Attorney General.

But the brothers wouldn't have long to work as a team.

President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963, Robert Kennedy five years later.

Ted Kennedy, deep in despair and devastated, was left to carry the torch.

"It took him several months before he could get himself back to the Senate floor, he thought about retiring and ultimately he decided, to use his words, to pick up the fallen standard," said Kennedy biographer Robert Clymer.

Kennedy threw himself into his work in the Senate, becoming a passionate advocate for civil rights, immigration and health care.

But on a late July evening in 1969, he faced another tragedy.

Kennedy drove his car off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, plunging into a pond and killing his passenger, former Robert Kennedy campaign worker, Mary Jo Kopechne (Ko-PECK-nee).

Kennedy escaped unharmed, but his reputation and political aspirations did not.

"There is no question that he would have had an excellent shot to become president of the United States, had it not been for Chappaquiddick," said presidential historian Allan Lichtman.

Kennedy did test the presidential waters in 1980 when he ran for the Democratic nomination.

But he bowed out to incumbent president Jimmy Carter, who lost the presidency the following November to Ronald Reagan.

At the 1980 Democratic National Convention in New York City, Kennedy delivered what would become one of the most memorable speeches of his career.

"For me, a few hours ago, this campaign came to an end. For all those whose cares have been our concerns, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dream shall never die," he said to a roaring crowd.

Instead, Kennedy's legacy would be built in the Senate, where he became a tireless champion and achieved landmark reforms on issues from education to immigration to health care.

Over 300 Kennedy-sponsored bills are now law. And his hand-prints are on most of the major pieces of legislation to pass the Senate in the last 50 years.

"If your parents or someone you know gets benefits from meals on wheels, that's Kennedy. If they go to a neighbourhood health centre, that's Kennedy. He played a leading role in ending the draft. There's been no civil rights bill since he got to the Senate that he hasn't played a significant role on," said Kennedy biographer Clymer.

Jim Young, the Director of the Kennedy Oral History Project, added: "He's sort of a stand-alone in history. His level of accomplishments and the range of those accomplishments are quite extraordinary."

Historians say the key to Kennedy's success: He was pragmatic, persistent and a master at turning traditional foes into legislative partners.

"I would say in many ways that this is the greatest legacy of Ted Kennedy: that he could remain a staunch and steadfast liberal and yet at the same time, work so effectively with Republicans, including conservative Republicans," said Lichtman.

Adam Clymer agreed: "His colleagues, even when they don't agree with him, know that he cares, that he's a man of his word, and that he's a man of the Senate."

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

1. SOUNDBITE (English) John F Kennedy:

"Let both sides explore what problems unite us instead of belaboring those problems which divide us.

Let both sides, for the first time, formulate serious and precise proposals for the inspection and control of arms, and bring the absolute power to destroy other nations under the absolute control of all nations.

Let both sides seek to invoke the wonders of science instead of its terrors. Together let us explore the stars, conquer the deserts, eradicate disease, tap the ocean depths, and encourage the arts and commerce.

Let both sides unite to heed, in all corners of the earth, the command of Isaiah -- to "undo the heavy burdens, and [to] let the oppressed go free."¹

And, if a beachhead of cooperation may push back the jungle of suspicion, let both sides join in creating a new endeavor -- not a new balance of power, but a new world of law -- where the strong are just, and the weak secure, and the peace preserved.

All this will not be finished in the first one hundred days. Nor will it be finished in the first one thousand days; nor in the life of this Administration; nor even perhaps in our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.

In your hands, my fellow citizens, more than mine, will rest the final success or failure of our course. Since this country was founded, each generation of Americans has been summoned to give testimony to its national loyalty. The graves of young Americans who answered the call to service surround the globe.

Now the trumpet summons us again -- not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need -- not as a call to battle, though embattled we are -- but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation,"² a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.

Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort?"

Swearing -in and Inauguration of President John F. Kennedy.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

1. Wide, crowd

2. Mid, John F Kennedy being sworn in

3. SOUNDBITE (English) John F Kennedy:

"Vice President Johnson, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Chief Justice, President Eisenhower, Vice President Nixon, President Truman, reverend clergy, fellow citizens:

We observe today not a victory of party, but a celebration of freedom -- symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning -- signifying renewal, as well as change. For I have sworn before you and Almighty God the same solemn oath our forebears prescribed nearly a century and three-quarters ago.

The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe -- the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans -- born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world."

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

1. SOUNDBITE (English) John F Kennedy:

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

This much we pledge -- and more.

To those old allies whose cultural and spiritual origins we share, we pledge the loyalty of faithful friends. United there is little we cannot do in a host of cooperative ventures. Divided there is little we can do -- for we dare not meet a powerful challenge at odds and split asunder.

To those new states whom we welcome to the ranks of the free, we pledge our word that one form of colonial control shall not have passed away merely to be replaced by a far more iron tyranny. We shall not always expect to find them supporting our view. But we shall always hope to find them strongly supporting their own freedom -- and to remember that, in the past, those who foolishly sought power by riding the back of the tiger ended up inside.

To those people in the huts and villages of half the globe struggling to break the bonds of mass misery, we pledge our best efforts to help them help themselves, for whatever period is required -- not because the Communists may be doing it, not because we seek their votes, but because it is right. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.

To our sister republics south of our border, we offer a special pledge: to convert our good words into good deeds, in a new alliance for progress, to assist free men and free governments in casting off the chains of poverty. But this peaceful revolution of hope cannot become the prey of hostile powers. Let all our neighbors know that we shall join with them to oppose aggression or subversion anywhere in the Americas. And let every other power know that this hemisphere intends to remain the master of its own house.

To that world assembly of sovereign states, the United Nations, our last best hope in an age where the instruments of war have far outpaced the instruments of peace, we renew our pledge of support -- to prevent it from becoming merely a forum for invective, to strengthen its shield of the new and the weak, and to enlarge the area in which its writ may run.

Finally, to those nations who would make themselves our adversary, we offer not a pledge but a request: that both sides begin anew the quest for peace, before the dark powers of destruction unleashed by science engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction.

We dare not tempt them with weakness. For only when our arms are sufficient beyond doubt can we be certain beyond doubt that they will never be employed.

But neither can two great and powerful groups of nations take comfort from our present course -- both sides overburdened by the cost of modern weapons, both rightly alarmed by the steady spread of the deadly atom, yet both racing to alter that uncertain balance of terror that stays the hand of mankind's final war.

So let us begin anew -- remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate."

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

1. SOUNDBITE (English) John F Kennedy:

"In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility -- I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it. And the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world, ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.

Finally, whether you are citizens of America or citizens of the world, ask of us here the same high standards of strength and sacrifice which we ask of you. With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God's work must truly be our own."
