Counterinsurgency and Collusion in Northern Ireland by Mark McGovern

Féile, Inc. and the Bridgeport Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) co-host the book launch of Counterinsurgency and Collusion in Northern Ireland by Mark McGovern, PhD on Sunday June 9  at 2PM in the Carolan Room.

Dr. McGovern’s book focuses on the end game policy of collusion in the Mid-Ulster area, when Republicans and their families were targeted by Loyalist paramilitaries and criminals acting in concert with British State forces. It is the result of years of working with Relatives for Justice (RFJ) interviewing the bereaved and injured, and intensive research into collusion as a state policy.

Also attending the book launch will be Mark Thompson, human rights attorney and founder of Relatives for Justice (RFJ).  The RFJ was founded in 1991 and is a Northern Ireland based human rights NGO providing holistic support services to the bereaved and injured of the Troubles.

Sunday June 9th @ 2PM. The event is free and open to the public
