It seems the Aubane Historical Society are everywhere these
days. They have been heavily involved in the controversy over
the "Hidden History/Coolacrease" documentary.
They have also been claiming in the "Irish Examiner"
that Elizabeth Bowen should not be
accepted as an Irish writer because of her activities in WWII.

And the linked Irish Political Review Group have recently issued a
statement praising " the recent High Court ruling against the Irish Times because of its refusal to comply with instructions from the Mahon Tribunal".

Even more unusually, several members of these groups (Brendan &
Angela Clifford, Jack Lane, David Alvey etc.) were involved in
the "British and Irish Communist Organisation", a Leninist group
that was also strongly pro-Ulster Unionist.

Curiouser and curiouser, as Lewis Carroll would say.
