Decoding the IRA
Historian Tom Mahon and code breaker James J. Gillogly have spent the past few years breaking the IRA's communications code. The code was used for the organisation's most secret messages. The newly decoded secret documents reveal the IRA's mindset in the years following the civil war and the results are explosive as they expose IRA secrets that have been concealed for over 75 years.
Featuring facsimilies of the actual coded documents, the book delves into nearly every matter conceivable for a paramilitary organisation, ranging from the importation of explosives to the use of IRA informants in the gardai. Documents detail the IRA's secret agreement with the Soviet Union and its attempts to provide military assistance to China; military espionage in America; plans to stage a gas attack on Dublin; the IRA's infiltration of the GAA and control of the Kerry football team and the struggle with Eamon de Valera and Fianna Fail. The book provides an unnerving insight into how the IRA saw itself and conducted its dangerous business in secrecy.
