Say Nothing

The IRA was big news for a number of decades, and then it just kind of disappeared from the public eye as peace took hold. Documents and other evidence from that period has now come out. What happened behind the scenes is fascinating, as told in the fantastic book, Say Nothing.

The story-telling is fantastic, but the stories are real. They describe the circumstances behind disappearances, murders and other malicious acts on both sides of the battle for Northern Ireland. I knew very little about the IRA before this book, but I have a much better grasp on the issues now. Highly recommend.
