674. The Trouble with the “Official” History of the Troubles

You might have read that the British Government are planning to compile an “official” history of The Troubles. We are cynical, so it was a pleasure to be rejoined in the Tortoise Shack by troubles historian and author of books on Loyalism, Gareth Mulvenna.

We discuss the ideas merits and demerits, Gareth’s take on whether an official history is even possible and some of the recent developments that would make you ask have we learned anything form the last 50/60 years. As always, great to chat with Gareth. Check out his regular writings at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/GarethMulvenna
