I'm not holding my breath.  Ireland has been restive for centuries and there's no reason to believe that won't be true going forward.  Hopefully we can get a few decades of peace before the trouble flares up again.

So the troops leave years after the violence stops? Not the other way around? Interesting.

Helps a lot if the departing troops were

[1] part of the same culture
[2] the other side in a civil war

There was no clear victor except sanity.
