Tosóidh an tsraith nua ‘Mná an IRA – Dearcadh ar Leith’ amárach ar TG4 ag 10.30in. Is sraith faisnéise faoi sheisear ban a raibh páirt lárnach acu san IRA í. Breathnaíonn na cláir ar an éifeacht agus an tionchar a bhí ag a gcuid gníomhaíochtaí ar na coimhlintí i dTuaisceart éireann agus ar pholaitíocht an Deiscirt.

Faightear dearcadh leithleach ar na 40 bliain atá díreach imithe trí shúile na mban seo, Rose Dugdale, Josephine Hayden, Pamela Kane, Martina Anderson, Roseleen Walsh agus Roseleen McCorley. Insíonn siad a scéal féin agus is féidir an stair, a ndearnamar dearmad uirthi nó a raibh bainte amach as stair oifigiúil na dTrioblóidí faoi mhná agus an ról a bhí acu, a fheiceáil.

 

Tá sé chlár sa tsraith agus díríonn gach clár ar bhean amháin. Feicimid an turas ar thóg siad agus faigheann muid amach na fáthanna gur bheartaigh siad páirt a ghlacadh san IRA. Tá ábhar cartlainne le feiceáil sna cláir a chuireann cúrsaí polaitíochta i gcomhthéacs don lucht féachana.

Is ó theaghlach Sasanach, uaslathach í Rose Dugdale ach dhiúltaigh sí airgead a muintire agus thug sí neart cabhrach do dhaoine bochta. Faoin am ar bhog sí go Béal Feirste go luath sna 70aidí, bhí sí ag iarraidh deireadh a chur leis an gcaipitleachas agus bhí sí ina ball d’aonad gníomhach den IRA.

 

Bhí suim ag Josephine Hayden i saol na gCaitliceach ó Thuaidh nuair a chuala sí faoi mháirseálacha na nOráisteach nuair a bhí sí óg. ó shin, chaith sí ceithre bliana go leith i bpríosún agus dhiúltaigh sí é a fhágáil go luath faoi Chomhaontú Aoine an Chéasta. Is as teaghlach poblachtach í Pamela Kane ó thuaisceart Bhaile átha Cliath ach, ba as Tír Eoghain a hathair. Ceann de na rudaí a rinne sí ná dreapadh anuas an crann teilifíse atá ag RTé nuair nár thug siad cead d’iarrthóirí Shinn Féin aon rud a chraoladh de bharr chinsireacht an stáit.

 

Is ball de Chumann na mBan í Martina Anderson. D’fhás sí aníos i rith na gcíréibeacha agus na dtrioblóidí agus bhí páirt ag a muintir iontu. I ndiaidh roinnt ama a chaitheamh sa phríosún, ghlac sí ballraíocht i Sinn Féin agus faoi láthair is í an LeasChéad-Aire Sóisearach i Stormont í.

Is as teaghlach Poblachtach í Roseleen Walsh agus ba ghnách léi páirt a ghlacadh i ngluaiseacht na bPoblachtach. Bhí sí ina bhall de Shinn Féin agus bhí páirt lárnach aici sa phróiseas síochána.

Mná an IRA

 

Thursday 12th January, TG4, 22:30

 

"Josephine Hayden: Born in County Waterford, Josephine Hayden became aware of a curious fact when she worked in a hotel for the summer as a young woman. She noticed that a large influx of people arrived around the time of the 12th July and she discovered that they came South to avoid the Orangemen’s marches. This piqued her interest and made her question what life was like for Catholics in the North. Over the years, what began as sympathy for the people she met then hardened into direct involvement in the armed movement towards a united Ireland. She served four-and-a-half years in Limerick prison for transporting arms and ammunition for the Continuity IRA"

What a west-Brit revisionist scumbag!

 

It sickens me to read this shit, these people would gladly have history rewritten to suit their own agenda and the great contribution made by the republican resistance down through the years.

 

Its pieces of shit like this who have dragged republicanism through the dirt while diluting and distorting it along the way.

 

Thankfully most people see through the west-Brits charade for what it is and are proud of the contribution made on their behalf by the republican movement!

I'm surprised to see anyone describing republicanism as a "failed ideology" and really I don't know what they mean. I would ask them how they would react to the occupation soldiers marching on their streets, would they greet them with flowers? Do they think being submissive and nice to the imperialist UK would ever make it retreat or respect them? It never works that way. And no, actually I don't believe these journalists can be that simple. It is all about being sell-outs and seeking personal gains, nothing else would explain it. The country was and is occupied. Actually noone should ever accept this abnormal situation. I think in the 50's of last century everyone accepted colonialism was wrong in Africa but here we have colonial structure still existing in Europe. Loads of people in Europe never give it a thought and we could partly blame the Independent journos for that as well as others. If someone from outside of Ireland reads articles like that one, they would usually think "If the Irish are ok with the situation it must be ok then, what do we know?" Strangely enough, I met a lot of Europeans campaigning for Palestine, against the war in Iraq, against imperialist assaults in Latin America, who wouldn't have a clue about Ireland. The mainstream Irish media (including The Independent) must take a huge blame for that state of affairs.

Thats an important point about the 1950s. By the 50s, the influence of the October Revolution was probably at its highest all around the world, and Workers really could feel their strength. In Africa, Asia and South America, imperialism was being forced into compromise and, sometimes, withdrawal. In the Arab world, Gamel Nasser was exciting the minds of the young, with a secular Arab nationalism, that took much of its inspiration from the USSR. Not least of these young men was Muammar Gaddafi. However, most of that has been lost. The murder of Colonel Gaddafi and the attack on Syria marks the Ancien Régime proclaiming loud and clear that all the progress of the 20th century is to be buried. We are firmly back in the 19th century - a pre WW1 order, where wealth rules without question. The only thing is that we still have the memory of the 1950s. The Spirit of those days cannot be wiped out.

I wasn't particularly impressed with the episode on either of the first two episodes. While the personal contributions from the women themselves was interesting there was very little insight from the other contributors. They were all from a conflicting perspective from the subjects themselves, which in itself is not objectionable, but appeared to be more interested in justifying their own position than shedding light onto the subjects.

Thats very true. Of course, the film makers feel the have to cover their backs, or they might find this is the last work they ever do for Irish TV - so they devote half of the program to idiots who will slander Republicanism for them. Even so, we had the usual suspects in the Sindo screaming their heads off that this series was even made. The very sight of Irish Republicans on TV is enough to give these chronic West Brits an apopleptic fit.

It wasn't clear to me from the programme what stance she took on the GFA. Did you manage to get a decent chat with her?

The guy from the provos in the Josephine Hayden episode says one of the most stupid things of all time. He says that the provos realised that the Brits were willing to let them die or stay in prison - and once they understood that, they started to look for a different way of doing things. Well, what the hell did they think they were fighting? Of course the Brits would be happy to kill the lot of them, or let them rot in jail forever.

 

But, I agree that it was time to change the way things were being done. But there were a lot more options than becoming constitutional nationalists.

No, I didnt, because the music was quite loud, I just spoke about this program. She didnt seem to be very satisfied with it, but I said that she had done very well - and I think she did. She certainly put the class element to the fore - which is something that PSF very rarely does.

She certainly did that, and at personal sacrifice to herself. Fair play to her. It didn't sound that she was still politically active, although she came across as very principled.

The guy from the provos that said that Peter Brook saying that Britain had no selfish strategic interest in "N.Ireland" opened the door to talks is either a shameless liar or a complete fool. Of course, Britain has been claiming, since 1922, that it has no selfish interest in "NI." It claims its only there because the "majority" wants it there.

She came to one of the Brendan Lillis protests we had at the Tourist Board - but, more shame me, I didnt recognise her at the time.
