Living With Ghosts by Brian Rowan


Living With Ghosts is an inside story from inside a 'Troubles' mind.

Across its pages, veteran journalist Brian Rowan retraces his steps back through the tunnel of Northern Ireland's conflict years and into the darkness of those times. His story takes us beyond the often-strict boundaries of the news into the dilemmas, arguments and fears behind its scenes. In his career Rowan walks along the thinnest of lines on a path where morals and ethics and principles are blurred, and his mind becomes tortured. This book is an explanation. Not a confession.

He goes deep into his contacts with the IRA, the loyalist organisations, MI5, Special Branch, the Army and the many other players in the conflict period, and he joins the dots on a journey out of 'war' that has not yet found peace of mind.

Rowan thinks and writes inside a moral maze, and takes us inside his mind's wardrobe, into his nightmares of remembering and to times he will never forget. Living with Ghosts is a deeply personal account of one man’s doubts and decisions, and the challenges of reporting a war on his doorstep.


‘As a reporter, he listened to the heartbeat of the Troubles. A difficult and carefully told tale, carried out with humanity.’ Kate Adie


Brian Rowan is a former BBC correspondent in Belfast. Since the late 1980s, he has reported on all the major developments on Northern Ireland’s journey from war to peace; stories he has told using a range of sources – IRA, loyalist, police, military, intelligence, political, Church and others. Rowan left the BBC in 2005, the year the IRA ended its armed campaign. Four times he has been a category winner in the Northern Ireland Press and Broadcast awards, including twice as Specialist Journalist of the Year. Living With Ghosts is his seventh book.
