Liam Clarke and Barry Penrose (see review of The Committee, below) co-authored the story 'Syria paid IRA to kill Mountbatten' in the Sunday Times 17 May 1998, in which they reported that they had been told by former IRA member Sean O'Callaghan that he had been told that......

22. Orders for the Captain (Book review) [Lobster #15 (Feb 1988)]
... Kelly (Kelly-Kane, Bailieboro, Ireland, 1971/86) Kelly's Genesis of Revolution, reviewed in Lobster 13 gave an overview of the Irish situation during the period 1969-73, from the Dublin arms trials to the failure of Sunningdale. It advanced the theory that a war of attrition between the British Army and the Provisional IRA became inevitable after the Dublin Government backed down from intervening in the North in 1970. Orders For The Captain is Kelly's detailed account of his personal role in the crisis period of August 1969 to May 1970, when, on secret orders, he liaised between Northern Defence Committees and the Dublin Government, and arranged for undercover importation of arms ...

... of 'terrorism' that are attempted merely produce problems. The version offered by the editor (p9) is: "terrorism is the deliberate and systematic murder maiming and menacing of the innocent to inspire fear for political ends." Which just about covers the whole of American foreign policy since the late 19th century, but only just includes the IRA, for example. (To his credit, the editor does not mention the IRA in his essay.) Yet elsewhere Paul Johnson does include the IRA (and, incidentally, offers one of the real misinformation gems of the volume: "the IRA finances itself through the drug trade"). Other gems, at random: ...

24. The 'Terrorist Threat' in Britain [Lobster #17 (Nov 1988)]
... to be a neo-Nazi provocation. Meanwhile, another 'Black Liberation Front', apparently based in London, and apparently an off-shoot of the Black Panthers (sic), disowned the Wolverhampton version. (Sunday Times 31 July 1988) The final important link was made in the August edition of Special Forces which told of an IRA 'alliance with the London based Black Liberation Front. ' (p22) (Special Forces is edited by a former British Army officer, Peter Harclerode.) The themes of insidious conspiracy and subversion within have always been a part of the British Right's ideological package, but in the past few years they have become much more explicit. At ...

' Correlation is not causality; in any case, Black notes that Tendler and May do not document any contact between the Weathermen and the Brotherhood, let alone Stark. As it stands the assertion is worthless, in other words. Friends, Frendz, the IRA, Howard Marks and...In Britain, according to Black, Stark's crucial contact was with 'the ex-Situationist Friends magazine': a nexus of psychedelia, political radicalism and armed struggle.

... not have a substantive support base overseas; nor have they received much in the way of academic attention. They are not f ted by Dublin, Washington or London. Their self perception is that of a community that has systematically lost out, while Republicans hijack the Good Friday Agreement to their own ends. Nor, in contrast to the IRA, have Loyalists duped a section of the left into seeing them as freedom fighters. Historically, even bourgeois and mainstream unionists have been quite inept at handling the media and public relations. This has been amplified by the subsequent fragmentation of loyalism that Crawford's book, in part, addresses, and by the deepening sense of disempower-ment ...

The Independent was later moved to admit that the events which followed 'looked unpleasantly like revenge'.(1 ) On 11 November 1982, three unarmed Provisonal IRA men, Gervais McKerr, Eugene Toman and Sean Burns, were killed at a road block on Tullygally East Road, near Lurgan, by members of the RUC's elite Headquarters Mobile Support Unit (HQMSU). An RUC spokesman said that the men were shot trying to escape. The police fired 109 bullets into the car. Thirteen days ...

... mid-1980s almost everything else, including some fairly ad hoc joint Army-loyalist operations going back to the mid 1970s where Fred Holroyd came in had been tried without destroying the Provos. Larkin believes that a decision was made by the British state in the mid-1980s to train, arm and direct loyalist para-militaries against the IRA. The one piece missing from his analysis is evidence of the political dimension. Did the Conservative government approve of this? Did they know of this? Larkin presumes so but cannot demonstrate it. Larkin lacks a senior British Army, intelligence officer or civil servant, let alone a cabinet minister, willing to admit this was the policy ...

... put together with the first 244 pages covering the contemporary Troubles, but tacked onto the end another hundred odd pages providing a Cook's tour of Irish revolutions and revolutionaries. This extended appendix is of little value. The book also contains some clumsy factual errors: for example, the bombing of McGurk's Bar was not, as Geraghty claims, 'an IRA own goal'; and the Civil Rights movement was certainly not 'a classic of Republican political deception'. Nevertheless there is much of interest in the main body of the text. Geraghty's account of the early years of the war provides further reinforcement for what has become the accepted view: the Army's counter-insurgency methods were completely inappropriate ...

If the IRA really wanted a united Ireland, it was wasting its time shooting British soldiers and bombing Northern Ireland into an industrial and social slum, ' he said. 'It would be better employed persuading the Protestants that they could have a good life in some sort of union with the South. ' (pp. 223/4 ) But Smith's ...
