Afternoon with the Authors – The Men Will Talk to Me: Ernie O’Malley’s Interviews with the Northern Divisions
Diarmuid Ó Tuama and Fearghal Mac Bhloscaidh are editors of The Men Will Talk to Me: Ernie O’Malley’s Interviews with the Northern Divisions, published by Merrion Press in 2018.
They will be speaking about the collection of interviews conducted and recorded by famed Irish republican revolutionary Ernie O’Malley during the 1940s and 1950s. The interviews were carried out with survivors of the four Northern Divisions of the IRA, chief among them Frank Aiken, Peadar O’Donnell and Paddy McLogan, who offer fascinating insights into Ulster’s centrality in the War of Independence and the slide towards Civil War.
