    A book that was released earlier in the year containing interviews with Brendan Hughes and David Ervine. They recorded interviews as part of the Boston College history project on the proviso that the interviews wouldn't be published until after their deaths.

    RTÉ are screening a documentary based on the book and interviews next Tuesday.

    In it Hughes states that Jean McConville was a snitch for the crown forces and so the IRA persecution of this family extends beyond two graves.
    All I can hope for on this brisk Sunday morning is that the said Mr Hughes gets an long extended swinging in purgatory.

    And Hughes confirms our very worst fears and suspicions- Gerry Adams was in the IRA and was leader on Bloody Friday when human being were blown to bits running from one car bomb into another !

    Hughes can't confirm anything. I object to thins kind of beyond the grave nonsense. If you have an accusation to make then make it when you can be questioned about it. Otherwise it has to be taken as rubbish no matter who you are.

    Just because you are dead doesn't make you an objective witness. If everything I said now was going to be taken as gospel when I died then I'd certainly be tempted to indulge in a bit of agenda setting and score settling.

    None of this would be admissible in a court of law for very good reason.

    Of course. Of course.
    Gerry was just a specky four-eyes who was allowed hang around with the lads because they felt sorry for him - they showed him to pick up women, how to play poker, how to be cool like them but occassionally they told him to go outside and play because they had man-talk to do.
    Gerry never had anything to do with the bombing or the shooting or anything bold like that.
    Oh no no no.
    He was a good boy and he still has his first communion money.
    Riiiight.
