Martin Galvin with details of this weekend's broadcast from Radio Free Eireann.
While Irish flags and "England Out of Ireland" banners are a feature of St. Patrick's Day Parades in New York, Independent Irish Republican Councillor Paul Gallagher, will report on British officials banning Irish flags from the St. Patrick's Day Parade in the overwhelmingly nationalist town of Strabane, County Tyrone,and the fight to overturn that ban.
Award winning journalist, author and historian Ed Moloney, will tell us about Stakeknife, a top British agent within the IRA Freddie Scappaticci, and the political fallout from his arrest, questioning and release by British constabulary despite being suspected of involvement in up to 50 murders.
