Why should IRA murderers repent? Why should ANY murderers repent? It’s Northern Ireland – carry on murdering!

Why should IRA murderers repent? Why for that matter should ANY murderer repent? Forget even a “religious” repentance or turning away from murders for RELIGIOUS reasons – why should any murderers change their ways for even a SECULAR repentance, such as a conversion to concepts of victims’ rights, civil rights or Human Rights? You don’t just have to be “religious” to give up murder… Why … Continue reading Why should IRA murderers repent? Why should ANY murderers repent? It’s Northern Ireland – carry on murdering!

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 – while the Bogside and Brandywell units wanted a different IRA man – Robby – to be the O.C. It wasn’t a stand-off that was likely to be … 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?

Eamonn Mallie unfairly attacks England bomber Martina Anderson

In his long-winded 3,000 word ‘contribution’ entitled “The Unacceptable Faces of the DUP and Sinn Féin”, Northern Ireland’s favourite pompous windbag Eamonn Mallie opines for 2,500 words about the DUP (and Alliance) and then in only the final 340 words addresses ‘the unacceptable faces of Sinn Féin’ where he names only one Shinner, Martin McGuinness’ favourite IRA England bomber Martina Anderson – and his case … Continue reading Eamonn Mallie unfairly attacks England bomber Martina Anderson

Colum Eastwood Dances with Wolves

Colum Eastwood’s massive victory in Derry/Londonderry over Sinn Féin and its controlling IRA Army Council strategists shows – among other things – a desire among many constitutional nationalists to throw off the yoke of Sinn Féin abstentionism and the IRA’s sectarian and violence-glorifying influence in favour of some ‘normal’ politics and representation. Who would have imagined that Northern Ireland’s second city would ever give the … Continue reading Colum Eastwood Dances with Wolves

Is it possible to be in the IRA and have “no victims”, as Paul O’Connor claims?

Closet IRA Volunteer and Director of the Pat Finucane Centre Paul O’Connor recently expressed one of the more extraordinary claims I have heard in many years – he admitted only under severe pressure and after being outed that he had been a fully active IRA Volunteer from 1970 until 1972 and yet HAD NO VICTIMS… ABSOLUTELY NO VICTIMS! Is it possible to be in the … Continue reading Is it possible to be in the IRA and have “no victims”, as Paul O’Connor claims?

The Strange Case of Freya McClements, Co-author of “Children of the Troubles” & Paul O’Connor, closet IRA Volunteer & Director of the Pat Finucane Centre

Some months ago Freya McClements called me to tell me she was writing “Children of the Troubles” and asked me about a particular matter in relation to a teenage friend of mine, Jim O’Hagan, an IRA volunteer who was shot and killed in Deanfield in August 1971 by a fellow IRA volunteer as yet uncovered and unconvicted. I clearly told Freya that I did not … Continue reading The Strange Case of Freya McClements, Co-author of “Children of the Troubles” & Paul O’Connor, closet IRA Volunteer & Director of the Pat Finucane Centre

Did Paul O’Connor Murder Jim O’Hagan?

Paul O’Connor – the key to solving the Murder Paul O’Connor had to be “outed” last week – after 48 years of lies – before he would admit that he was an IRA Volunteer in the early 1970s. If photographic evidence and a Blog post had not arisen, he would have maintained his lie and cover-up in perpetuity. Paul has been a chronic liar for … Continue reading Did Paul O’Connor Murder Jim O’Hagan?

Paul O’Connor, IRA Volunteer Minus Victims

Paul O’Connor is an accomplished liar who can easily maintain lies for 5 decades. In spite of promoting catchphrases such as “Time for Truth” and “Time to Set the Truth Free”, he continues to lie.

Paul O’Connor, Director of The Pat Finucane Centre, admits IRA membership

Credit must be given to journalist Seamus McKinney of “The Irish News” for being the first journalist willing to run with my Blog story – 4 days after its publication – claiming that Paul O’Connor – Director of The Pat Finucane Centre so-called “Human Rights Group” – joined the IRA with me in 1970, an IRA past that he had hidden from everyone. Given the … Continue reading Paul O’Connor, Director of The Pat Finucane Centre, admits IRA membership

Paul O’Connor, Director of the Pat Finucane Centre, IRA Volunteer

I was 15 years old in 1970 when I met one of my childhood friends in the Bogside. He told me he had discovered the nascent Provisional IRA and was going to join the ‘Provos’ the very next evening. He asked me if I wanted to come with him. On a whim that was to change my life and the lives of many others, I … Continue reading Paul O’Connor, Director of the Pat Finucane Centre, IRA Volunteer
