Most anticipated analysis of where the Provos went right and where they went wrong, written by former hunger striker and political prisoner Tommy McKearney. McKearney thinks the IRA was right to put away the gun but wrong to enter parliament, at least without a mass social movement front and center. Sinn Fein is currently articulating a leftist vision of Irish society, but will this last, or will they seek to occupy the space of Fianna Fail?
