Spies, Informers and the ‘Anti-Sinn Fein Society’: The Intelligence War in Cork City, 1919-1921


John Borgonovo,
Foreword by Eunan O’Halpin

This book is an anthology of studies on the shooting of suspected civilian informers by the Cork city IRA in 1920-1921. The chapters focus on the British reprisal campaign, the IRA intelligence network, and the trends of the conflict; they provide unique evidence and conclusions regarding the situation in Cork city, which have not been published in any other work and directly contradicts some conclusions made in Peter Hart’s The IRA and its Enemies.
