Irish journalist to speak on end of conflict, Oct. 17
Posted October 9, 2003; 05:07 p.m.
Moloney, a veteran journalist and author of a controversial book on the Irish Republican Army, will speak at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 17, in the Stewart Film Theater, 185 Nassau St. The topic of his lecture, sponsored by the Fund for Irish Studies , is "Northern Ireland: A Conflict Ends."
Moloney is the author of "A Secret History of the IRA" (W.W. Norton, 2002). He has spent two decades writing about the IRA as Northern editor of the Irish Times and of the Sunday Tribune. He also has written for the Washington Post, The Economist and The Guardian, and in 1999 he was elected Irish Journalist of the Year.
While researching the book, Moloney had unprecedented access to the IRA and reveals some of the organization's most closely guarded secrets. He tells the inside story of how the IRA moved away from violence toward peace. Some believe this process could be a model for settling other bitter conflicts around the world.
