I get the impression he was a broken man waiting for 'justice' to find him. That's un-palatable to non Irish Republicans but that's what Dennis Donaldson himself had sworn allegiance to and Donegal neighbours in the wider Glenties area stated they knew he was up there, so his whereabouts would have been known to most IRA, former IRA.There is also speculation that he was opposed to the Adams/McGuinness peacemakers process. He thus had to die to maintain what they call peace.
Your normal, 2 faced informer, runs from his betrayed comrades yelping for their imperialist masters to shelter them before they're housed in some caravan along the North Sea with a new identity.
Dennis Donaldson didn't exhibit this pathetic survivalist instinct.
He's a tragic figure for me.
Collins also in South Armagh.
I think both should have been spared and let live with their torment.
