'Remarkable achievement' hailed as same sex marriage now legal in Northern Ireland

Ministers assigned as Stormont NI Assembly resumes

Speaking ahead of the discussions, Mr Johnson said they will focus on how the executive meant to take forward "critical reforms" to public services.

But the union's Northern Ireland director, Pat Cullen, has now said the "suspension" of that strike action could be proposed at its Northern Ireland board meeting on Thursday.

Speaking after she was elected, Foster said that Northern Ireland had "focused too much on derision and division" for the past three years and that it was now "time for Northern Ireland to get moving forward again". Mr. Varadkar said it was a hard issue.

"Now is the chance for the Government, the Executive and the Assembly of Northern Ireland to deliver for the people of Northern Ireland and to deliver on the priorities of the people, and that is, above all, improving healthcare, making sure we have fantastic schools and making sure our streets are safe".

But after yesterday's meeting with First Minister Arlene Foster, Deputy First Minister Michelle O'Neill and Secretary of State Julian Smith at Stormont Castle, Mr Johnson would not be drawn on how much the UK Government would fund Northern Ireland as part of the agreement.

The other members of the executive are: Minister for the economy: Diane Dodds (DUP), Minister for education: Peter Weir (DUP), Minister for agriculture, environment and rural affairs: Edwin Poots (DUP), Minister for communities: Deirdre Hargey (Sinn Féin), Minister for finance: Conor Murphy (Sinn Féin), Minister for health: Robin Swann (UUP), Minister for infrastructure: Nichola Mallon (SDLP).

Mr Poots said he did not want to get into precise figures but he was anticipating billions.

Plenty of other ceremonies and nominations have also been occurring, but the top prize in the film world is the Academy Awards. One actress who's notably left out of the Best Actress category is Lupita Nyong'o and the people of Twitter were not happy.

History has been made in Northern Ireland.

"It sends out a very strong message in terms of our commitment to work together, to work for the health service, to transform the health service and to value the biggest asset which the health service has - which is the staff".

"[Boris Johnson] must deliver".

The assembly sat for the first time in three years on Saturday after an agreement was reached between the DUP and Sinn Fein to restore Stormont's political institutions. We have all signed up to it and come into a multi-party executive, therefore it is now incumbent on the Prime Minister to step up to the plate in relation to financial resources.

"The two Governments must now honour their pledge and provide the funding needed to deliver on the New Decade, New Approach document".

He said he was grateful to colleagues around the executive table for helping to make it happen.

"The only circumstances in which you could imagine the need for checks from GB to NI, as I have explained before, is if those goods were going on into Ireland and we had not secured - which I hope and am confident we will - a zero tariff, zero quota agreement with our friends and partners in the EU", Johnson told reporters in Belfast on Monday.
