  1. First off It is difficult to find the programme on but I got it on

    I am interested in alternative republican groups especially the left. I would have liked to have heard Packie Carty's views on Saoradh policy on violence to achieve it aims.

    I can not help thinking that this is another party system. Do we need this type of structure and have we not gone down this road many times before. We start off with all good intentions but as time goes not the party becomes the aim itself and the end justifies the means. I am not a believer in a party structure or parliamentary system.

  2. Martin Galvin Says

    Saturday's problem with the website has been corrected!!!

    The program featuring interviews with Packy Carty about Saoradh, the new Irish Republican political party and Cormac O'Malley on the historic contribution of books based on Ernie O'Malley's writings and interviews can now be accessed.

    Go to then go to archives-scroll back to Radio Free Eireann at 12 noon-Saturday

    John and I think that yesterday's program was one of our best and regret any inconvenience.

  3. TPQ will also run the Packy Carty interview tomorrow morning

  4. All RFE interviews are at The Transcripts where a tremendous amount of effort goes into making the content more widely accessible.
