Description

Reporting The Troubles: Journalists Tell The Stories Of The Northern Ireland Conflict.

Marking fifty years since the beginning of The Troubles, this new book brings together over sixty stories from the journalists who were on the ground during the 30-year conflict. Telling tales of the victims and events they’ve never forgotten, and the lasting impact of those years, this book shows how each individual dealt with the conflict in their own way.
From eyewitness accounts of major atrocities, to meeting bereaved relatives, to dealings with paramilitaries and the state, these journalists reveal how they traversed the landscape of The Troubles with an absolute
commitment to telling the truth.
Join the editors Deric Henderson and Ivan Little, who will be in conversation with Seamus McKee, talking about the stories in the book and how they ended up with a compelling multi-voiced account of one of the most turbulent periods in recent history.
