Northern Divisions: The Old IRA and the Belfast Pogroms 1920-22
Who were the Belfast republicans of the early 1920s? How were they organised and how did they relate to the larger republican movement in Ireland? Historian and teacher Jim McDermott sets out to answer these questions, covering the shipyard expulsions, IRA raids and RIC reprisals, Nixon's murder gang, and the loyalist pogroms which claimed the life of the author's grandfather. A powerful chronicle of Belfast republicanism.
