Abstract:
This study of the official IRA/Republican Clubs covers the Ulster crisis from the inception of the Civil Rights campaign in 1968, through the riots in August 1969, which resulted in the introduction of British troops onto Northern Ireland's streets. The reaction of the Official IRA/Republican Clubs to the rise of the Provisional IRA, the presence of British troops, internment, 'Bloody Sunday#, the rise of Loyalist paramilitary groups and the sectarian murders of 1972 - 1974 is examined. A chronological pattern from 1968 to 1974 is followed and the OIRA/Republican Clubs role and activities are analyzed from area to area.
