Belfast journalist Liam Clarke died this week. He was one of the most lucid and considered commentators on Northern Irish politics. This is a recording of a conversation I had with him before an audience four years ago. Advertisements

Why I Believe in Santa ClausAdmin

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 19:40:23 +0000

I believed in Santa Claus before I believed in God. And when I was taught first about the baby Jesus, the story to start with was the one about the little poor baby who got presents for Christmas, brought by men who looked a bit like Santa in their colourful robes and head gear, who […]

Lost in Translation: Loyalism and the MediaAdmin

Thu, 12 Feb 2015 15:37:15 +0000

This is the text of a chapter published in The Contested Identities of Ulster Protestants, edited by Paul Burgess and Gareth Mulvenna. Over the last four years I have been invited on about twenty occasions to meet with groups of Belfast loyalists and to provide them with training in presentation and interaction with the media. […]

A New Constitution – what’s in it for us?Admin

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 09:45:01 +0000

Scotland is now more sharply divided on the union than Northern Ireland is. Polling last year showed that only 3 per cent of people here would vote for a united Ireland in an immediate referendum. Larger numbers have long term aspirations for Irish unity but the decision has already been made, in the hearts of […]

Belfast and the BikeAdmin

Tue, 17 Jun 2014 13:38:35 +0000

This is a recording of a debate organised by The Fred. The proposal, led by Green Party councillor John Barry is that Belfast can never be a cycling city. He was opposed by Thomas MacConaghie. I chaired and there was a great animated audience.

Memory and Message in the Writings of Gerry Adams.Admin

Fri, 06 Jun 2014 16:09:04 +0000

This is a recording of a paper I gave to the Art of the Troubles Conference at the Ulster Museum today. Gerry Adams has written two separate accounts of his attempt to escape from Long Kesh and I try to analyse why he may have told the story so differently at different times.

Get back to the Past and Sort It!Admin

Sat, 10 May 2014 12:03:32 +0000

The arrest of Gerry Adams showed that without a process for dealing with the past we only have policing and that can deliver destabilising shocks. This talk was first broadcast on Radio Scotland, May 10, 2014.

Museum of the TroublesAdmin

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 07:42:20 +0000

Unionism has been strangely inept in the face of the confident republican assertion of the value of its tradition. We saw this in the response to the Castlederg commemoration of the IRA dead and we see it in the discussion about the Peace Centre agreed for the Maze site, which the DUP is drawing back […]
