100 Years of Northern Ireland


2021 marked 100 years since the creation of Northern Ireland

To mark this centenary there was a programme of events which showcased Northern Ireland on the world stage as an attractive place to live, visit and do business, and to acknowledge Northern Ireland’s people, businesses, culture, arts, and young talent, reflecting on our past while looking forward to a positive future.

The ‘Our Story in the Making: NI Beyond 100’ brand was created for the Centenary year in the spirit of inclusivity, mutual respect and optimism for Northern Ireland, respecting all perspectives, as we go beyond 100. It is a brand that has been brought to life in stories. Stories of every sort, from every person, across every corner of our place. Stories of our past, present and future ambition – the celebrated and the unsung, the everyday and the extraordinary. The Centenary year was an invitation to everyone to share the stories that have shaped us and this place we all call home. So, together, we can shape the future Northern Ireland as we see it.
