    Default New Archive launched:Public records from the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI)

    CAIN: The National Archives of Ireland Records on the CAIN Web Site

    Browsing by year it's possible to see correspondance regarding Northern Ireland and Government attitudes.

    CAIN: National Archives, Ireland - Records on the CAIN Web Site

    Go to it...there are even RUC reports on the Civil Rights demonstrations and the presence of IRA on the platforms.

    These are all records held in Dublin, not Belfast.


    Not sure if they are accessible on NAI's own site.

    Very useful resource, I used it for this article on internment, you can now read cabinet discussions from the 1970s without leaving your home!

    The pages are marked with the file reference no. PRONI HA-32-2-27
    The tag PRONI (aka the Apen Scrow Oaffis o Norlin Airlann) would suggest that they come from the Belfast Archives.

    It is a good resource although I enjoy rooting around in the originals!

    There is an interesting letter from John McAnerney of NICRA who was one of the 'moderates' allied to the CPNI's Sinclair and Coughlan who was advising Goulding on strategy.

    The letter is from before the Derry march in October 1968 which led to the ballte of the Bogside. McAnerney informs the RUC that there is no Derry branch of NICRA! and that the local militants - persumably McCann et al, have nothing to do with them. NICRA did not want the march to go ahead and the likes of Sinclair and Coughlan blamed the so-called 'ultra leftists' for having destroyed their lovely stagist theory!
