The Men of Derry - Introduction
Reminiscences of Ireland From the Journals of Eddie, following Bloody Sunday
The murder of 13 unarmed men in Derry on January 30, 1972 by British troops caused an outburst of militant nationalism throughout the State of Northern Ireland, and both of the Irish Republican Armies, the Official IRA and the Provisional IRA, rode the wave of anger and disgust to new levels of popularity.
No-go areas were established in Belfast and Derry, as well as in many rural areas. For the first time in fifty years, the IRA became a visible force. Official and Provisional volunteers who had fled the North, packed the pubs of the border towns of the Republic of Ireland every evening. They lived from day to day, from one foolish vain gesture to another, from one ill-conceived idea to another.
