    Thank you for both your responses, your respectful engagement with the paper and positive comments on its significance. Professor Fred Powell claims I have made a courageous attempt to address welfare state convergence in Northern Ireland and Ireland, but that my assessment of the core models as ‘broadly neoliberal in character’ is fundamentally erroneous. My assessment of some convergence (albeit with obvious divergence) is limited to an assessment of social security arrangements—the focus of my paper and of Ciara Fitzpatrick and Charles O Sullivan’s recent ARINS paper.2
