IRA orders end of armed campaign

I hope this time it’ll last. The IRA announced yesterday that they have, “formally ordered an end to the armed campaign.”
Of course Ian Paisley made a huge commotion about it but hopefully all parties in Northern Ireland can now sit down together and do something constructive.
(A quick search returns this disturbing page on Ian Paisley. Did he really abduct a 16 year old girl in 1956? The Wikipedia page on him is much less inflamitory.)
Oh yes, here’s a photo of the IRA laying down their arms:
