The Claudy Bombers & Man “A” Unmasked

Rightly did the Police Ombudsman apologise to victims and victims’ families when he released his threadbare Claudy Bombings’ report whose admittedly ‘narrow remit’ effectively dwelt on only one alleged and named participant in the Claudy Bombings of July 31, 1972 – the priest James Chesney – thereby effectively cloaking the many other persons – all of them [bar one] members of the so-called ‘South Derry … Continue reading The Claudy Bombers & Man “A” Unmasked

Bishop Edward Daly vs The IRA

Fr. Edward Daly, the priest who famously waved a white handkerchief on Bloody Sunday, was consecrated Bishop of Derry on March 31, 1974. Six months later, the IRA murdered a close friend of his, as he recalled in his book, A Troubled See: In September 1974, I was called upon to officiate at my first funeral of a victim of violence since my appointment as Bishop … Continue reading Bishop Edward Daly vs The IRA

Gerry Adams and GOD – Why the IRA hasn’t Repented

In 1971, there was a stand-off or virtual split for a very short time in the Derry Brigade of the IRA. Creggan and other units wanted a particular IRA man to be the new O.C. – Roddy Carlin – while the Bogside and Brandywell units wanted a different IRA man – Robby Griffin – to be the O.C. It wasn’t a stand-off that was likely … Continue reading Gerry Adams and GOD – Why the IRA hasn’t Repented

The IRA’s Use of Torture

It is a strange quirk of history that the IRA’s early practice of extreme torture on its abducted and soon-to-be murdered prisoners occurred just as its political wing and proxies were protesting about the treatment of the very first internees back in 1971 who were later termed ‘the hooded men’. The IRA quickly developed its own hooded men and women who were not merely to … Continue reading The IRA’s Use of Torture

The IRA’s Legacy of Lies

Gerry Adams’ Cult mantra of late has been: “the IRA has left the scene”. Not so, Gerry – virtually all IRA members and prominent leaders have been absorbed into Sinn Féin and there they remain under the new disguise of democratic politics without a shred of remorse, repentance, truth or integrity. Look around you, Gerry, at the many self-confessed IRA shooters and bombers known to … Continue reading The IRA’s Legacy of Lies

IRA Prisoners – POWs or Terrorists?

Was the recently disbanded and self-styled ‘Irish Republican Army’ entitled to claim the term ‘Prisoners of War’ for its captured combatants? To qualify under the Third Geneva Convention, a combatant must be part of a chain of command, wear a “fixed distinctive marking, visible from a distance”, bear arms openly, and have conducted military operations according to the laws and customs of war. Since the … Continue reading IRA Prisoners – POWs or Terrorists?

Il Papa Francisco, il Giudice Rosario Livatino e l’IRA

Sua Santità, Papa Francisco, Ho letto recentemente che porterà a termine la beatificazione come martire di un Giudice italiano – Rosario Livatino – che fu assassinato dalla Mafia.

When Ulster Loyalists Bombed London

It was just a week after the IRA’s “Balcombe Street Siege” unit had been arrested in December 1975 – the unit’s members shown surrendering from the flat where they had taken hostages in a vain attempt to escape capture – and when Londoners thought the threat of more bombings and murders had receded that another no-warning bomb exploded in London. The IRA “Balcombe Street Siege” … Continue reading When Ulster Loyalists Bombed London

The Essential Guide to Colum Eastwood, SDLP Leader

Colum ‘the north‘ Eastwood has long been a critic of British Tories’ “English nationalism” – that narrow-minded and selfish English ‘ourselves alone’ “take back control of our future” Boris Johnson-style rhetoric: There’s an equally narrow-minded and selfish Irish ‘ourselves alone’ “take back control of your future” Colum Eastwood rhetoric: Is there much to choose between a narrow-minded, selfish English nationalist and a narrow-minded, selfish Irish … Continue reading The Essential Guide to Colum Eastwood, SDLP Leader

The IRA’s “Special Advisors”

Although the Gerry Adams‘ version of the IRA was defeated in its ‘armed struggle’ to try to force a United Ireland by wholesale murder, bombing and Human Rights’ atrocities, and although it surrendered most of its weaponry and disbanded most of its lower ranks as the price of admission to shared power in the partitionist UK parliament of Stormont, it needed various fig leaves to … Continue reading The IRA’s “Special Advisors”

RTE, Unquiet Graves and the Unquiet Facts

In 2001, University College Dublin’s prestigious Smurfit Business School was informed that one of its Senior Lecturers – “Dr” Gary Santry – had faked his Masters in Business Administration from Notre Dame and his PhD from the Southern Methodist University in Texas and yet had been hired and had taught successfully for over 4 years, even receiving an award from UCD for outstanding service through … Continue reading RTE, Unquiet Graves and the Unquiet Facts

Jane Fonda, Martin McGuinness and the Bloody Corpse

For many years there has been a movement intent on deodorizing Martin McGuinness’ legacy of mass murder during his 30 years as an IRA leader and chosen career as a direct and indirect executioner and unmatched liar. There were many occasions when bloody bodies were carried into homes in Derry/Londonderry and the householders were not always even sympathetic to the IRA. In August of 1971, … Continue reading Jane Fonda, Martin McGuinness and the Bloody Corpse
