A decade of broken promises

4 May 2015

THE WELLINGTON MONUMENT in Dublin’s Phoenix Park looms over the rooftops of nearby houses and blocks of flats in O’Devaney Gardens. O'Devaney was built in the 1950s as one of a number of social housing projects to rehome families during Dublin Corporation’s programme of slum and tenement clearances. It was named after Bishop Conor O’Devaney, a friend of Tyrone’s rebel chief, Hugh O’Neill, who was hanged at nearby Arbour Hill by the British in 1612 for treason, aged at least 80.

Mícheál Martin’s hysterical attacks on Sinn Féin

4 May 2015

RECENT hysterical attacks by Fianna Fáil leader Mícheál Martin on Sinn Féin reveal a deep desperation within his party’s senior ranks as it fails to attract voters, stagnates in opinion polls, and Martin eyes the vultures circling his rudderless leadership. Premium service article

A dangerous message to future generations

4 May 2015

WHO FEARS TO SPEAK of 1916? Apparently nobody. There is a lengthening list of views from former and current Taoisigh, to the not happening ones like Mícheál Martin, and not forgetting Ireland’s ‘social and political commentators’, who fill radio talk shows and Official Ireland’s newspapers with their pithy observations. They have been lining up to offer comment on ‘the 1916 problem’. Premium service article

Veterans For Peace – Binding the wounds of war

4 May 2015

IT’S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY but instead of going out celebrating I’m returning from a very interesting Q&A session I attended along with a former comrade, Pat Magee. It was at a conference organised by a group called ‘Veterans For Peace’. We were invited to London to address this group of British former soldiers and engage with them about our lives during the course of the conflict in Ireland, about our motivations in taking up arms against the Orange state, and Britain’s interference in Ireland but also, crucially, about our hopes and efforts today to help bind the wounds of war and create an Irish national democracy.

Peace – The Optimum Risk

4 May 2015

I WASN’T born a Methodist, a unionist or a citizen of the United Kingdom or of Ireland. I was born here on the island of Ireland, a human; pure and free from inherited identity labels or symbolism; devoid from political aspirations; unaware of social-economic-political conditions; and yet some on this island view or label me as ‘sectarian Orange scum’ or ‘a Hun’.
