David Ervine
Birth: Jul. 21, 1953
Death: Jan. 8, 2007

Irish Political Leader. Ulster politician and prominent figure in the Northern Irish peace process. A member of the Loyalist paramilitary underground in his youth, Ervine spent five years in prison after being caught driving a car that contained a bomb. After his release, he maintained his links to protestant paramilitaries by becoming a member of the Progressive Unionist Party. However, Ervine grew disillusioned with violence by the 1990's. His efforts proved crucial in pursuading one of Ulster's most violent terrorist groups, the Ulster Volunteer Force, to accept the 1994 cease fire. A strong supporter of the Good Friday Agreement, Ervine served in the Northern Ireland Assembly and led the PUP from 2002 until his death.  (bio by: Anglofranc)
