Looking back on the Hunger Strikes

Three key figures reflect on the Irish Republican hunger strikes of 1980 and 1981 in filmed interviews and a public talk posted to Youtube by the School of Political Science and Sociology at NUI Galway to mark the 35th anniversary of the 1981 hunger strike. They include a public interview with former hunger striker Laurence McKeown at NUI Galway in March 2016; an interview with Intermediary Brendan Duddy at his home in 2010; and a public talk at NUI Galway by former senior MI6 agent Michael Oatley in 2011 which includes discussion of his role in the ending of the 1980 hunger strike: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLp-6_r7fj3wPxnW8W7D1qw8Z6b41TH5_X.
