Reporting The Troubles 2 by Deric Henderson

Synopsis

In this follow-up to their landmark first book, Deric Henderson and Ivan Little have gathered new stories from seventy journalists who have worked in Northern Ireland during the Troubles. These contributors write powerfully about the victims they have never forgotten, the events that have never left them, and the lasting impact of working through those terrible years.

Reporting the Troubles 2, which includes contributions from a new generation of journalists, who came up in the years leading to the Good Friday Agreement, provides a compelling narrative of the last fifty years, and covers many of the key events in Northern Ireland's troubled history, from Bloody Sunday in 1972 to the inquest into the Ballymurphy Massacre in 2021. Grounded in the passionate belief that good journalism and good journalists make a difference, Reporting the Troubles 2 is a profoundly moving act of remembrance and testimony.

'I am sometimes asked to identify the most important story that I dealt with while I was editor of the Irish Times . I answer that the most important story was not published in a single day but over years. And it was not put together by any one journalist but by a whole cohort of reporters, photographers, feature writers and editors . For the most part they just got by-lines and the satisfaction of knowing that what they were doing was important, that the story had to be told, day by day, hour by hour. And that telling it could make a difference. It is difficult to imagine that there could ever have been a peace process without that.' Conor Brady, former editor, Irish Times

Reviews

'This book reveals the stoicism and bravery of those journalists, reporters and their colleagues who, faced with unimaginable pain and suffering, bore witness to the atrocities perpetrated and their aftermaths with admirable professionalism.' Tony Blair, former British PM

'Oh, and one last thing, please read it slowly. Let the words sink in. The victims and survivors deserve your time. The journalists herein have all earned great respect.' The Joe Cushnan Blog

'Often harrowing, only slightly less often uplifting, the book is a tribute to victims and those who were among the first to pay attention to them.' Belfast Telegraph

'A compelling account of one of the most turbulent periods in Northern Ireland's history.' The Irish News
