Opening of Stormont, 1932

The detachment of Northern Ireland from Eire meant that plans had to be made to construct a new parliament building in the province. Stormont was officially opened in 1932 to house the Home Rule elements of the now greatly reduced Ireland. The parliament was prorogued in 1972 but came back into operation in 1999.
