Brian Keenan: A Republican Legend
BRIAN KEENAN, one of the IRA’s leading figures over three decades of conflict died last May. Described by British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s Chief of Staff, as “the single biggest threat to the British state”
Brian spoke exclusively to An Phoblacht in the months before his death about his life as an IRA activist, his years in English jails in England and his political outlook.
Those interviews are now re-printed in a new commemorative booklet, along with accounts of Brian’s funeral including orations. In this booklet Brian Keenan explains, in his own words, what drove one of the most formidable foes the might of the British state has ever faced
