  1. Pity the Cork lads didn’t team up with the action group as this I reckon might have been enough to keep the organisation going well into the ’70s at least. Still very interesting to listen to and interviews like this shine a light on just how sterile the Left in Ireland has become over the last few decades. Thanks again for the work you’re doing in this area.

  2. Yes, this stuff is fascinating. I was in Cork a couple of months ago, and it just never crossed my mind to look him up. Now, of course, I’m kicking myself. I definitely will try to next time I’m there. Mick is doing a great job with all this stuff.
