This blog began as material collected while researching and preparing a biography of Jimmy Steele (1907-1970). The content mainly focuses on the IRA in Belfast, prison issues, republican publicity and publications and significant (and insignificant) episodes, mostly up to 1970. It does occasionally delve in other directions too.
Anyone with suggestions/comments/criticisms about the blog, or with ideas of potential submissions can use the direct messages on the various platforms such as Facebook or to @treasonfelony (Twitter) or simply email email@example.com at any time.
By the way – it is intended to complete and publish the Jimmy Steele biography some stage soon (I keep saying that but it will happen).
The blogs primary author, John Ó Néill, is from Belfast but now lives in Wexford. Educated at St Malachys College Belfast and Queens University, he has a BA and PhD in Archaeology and has published books on archaeology, history and sport. He runs Litter Press (among other things).
