Talk:Northern Campaign (Irish Republican Army)
|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
Added what Bowyer Bell has to say about the Northern Campaign. I know there is at least one other history out there that deals with it- attempting to get access to that book. Please feel free to correct spelling/formatting/typos and any details Bowyer Bell gives in his great book (well worth a read).
BTW, please correct the reference to "CS." which I didn't have time to look up, PLUS I also left in the profanity of "bastards" in the Behan quote as it is possibly permissable in the context of quotation. Please do NOT spam my talk page with wiki-rules & regs if it isn't. Wikistalking is against the rules.
The other thing worth mentioning is that all the details on IRA Northern / Eastern / Western Command etc. appear to be as yet uncreated- if you're feeling energetic, please create the redirects and fill in the details. Maybe someone with the knowledge as yet to edit on wikipedia will fill them in?
Nice to see this gaping hole in the history of the IRA finally filled (on wikipedia)!

Forgot to mention, I will be adding in the dates of all IRA activity 1942-1945 (as recorded by the Times of London next week. Soon as I get access to the newspapers, I don't think Bowyer Bells description of "60 incidents" is doing the bhoys justice.

- Nothing showing in the papers- checked them today, maybe Bowyer Bell was being generous? There are a lot of arms seizures reported but few attacks. I did get the statement issued at the start of the campaign though- now included, but the 1945 statement didnt appear in the Irish Times, London Times or Belfast Irish News, checked all around the time too as the 10th was a Saturday- guess they had more important things to report on.

- I will not be responding to messages left on my talkpage or on pages for articles I have worked on. Will no longer be contributing to wikipedia. Thank you. Fluffy999 13:08, 30 May 2006 (UTC)
CS = chief of staff
Anybody know any more about him? I see he was killed by An Garda Síochána during a gun battle at a wedding in Cavan. The wedding was his sister's and her son was no less than Gerry Tuite. I'm not sure at all if he was related to Matt Tuite of Julianstown in Meath, but Matt Tuite would most probably have been connected with Patrick Dermody as both of them were IRA men in the 1940s. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 11:45, 12 December 2007 (UTC)
