Blanketmen: the controversy…

Richard O’Rawe seems to have set a cat amongst the pigeons with the release of his controversial book on the Blanket protests and the hunger strikes. We’ll be returning to Monday’s fiery Talk Back session between the author, Bic McFarlane and Danny Morrison later (and at some length) but for now the Broom of Anger blog has some interesting comments and follow up, here, here and here.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
