Very useful resource, I used it for this article on internment, you can now read cabinet discussions from the 1970s without leaving your home!

Today in Irish History, 9 August 1971, Internment is introduced in Northern Ireland | The Irish Story, Irish History Online



It is a good resource although I enjoy rooting around in the originals!

There is an interesting letter from John McAnerney of NICRA who was one of the 'moderates' allied to the CPNI's Sinclair and Coughlan who was advising Goulding on strategy.

The letter is from before the Derry march in October 1968 which led to the ballte of the Bogside. McAnerney informs the RUC that there is no Derry branch of NICRA! and that the local militants - persumably McCann et al, have nothing to do with them. NICRA did not want the march to go ahead and the likes of Sinclair and Coughlan blamed the so-called 'ultra leftists' for having destroyed their lovely stagist theory!
