Who is really progressive in Northern Ireland?

On a recent trip to Belfast/Northern Ireland I wanted to find out who is really to be accepted as being a progressive force up there. The Left has generally supported those pro-catholics, who are working for a united Ireland as a part of a national liberation struggle from London rule. I decided to interview representatives of progressive parties on either side on the issues that socialists should really care about -- social issues -- to see how different they really are in their day-to-day politics in these current times of peace.
So far I've written the first two parts -- interviews with Paul Maskey of Sinn Fein ( http://johanneswilm.org/index.php/item/155 ) and Hugh Smyth of the Progressive Unionist Party ( http://johanneswilm.org/index.php/item/152 ). You can go read the interviews for yourself, but so far no conclusion has been drawn.
