Joe Tiernan
 
# 1 : Saturday 3-10-2009 @ 13:15
 
 
Joe Tiernan is a freelance journalist living in Ireland. He is the author of the book 'THE DUBLIN AND MONAGHAN BOMBINGS' which traces the story of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings: the conspiracy, the planning, the execution and the personnel involved. It also looks at the Garda investigation which followed the bombings.

Joe was educated at University College Dublin and Trinity College. He started his journalistic career in the late 1970's in print journalism and worked as a reporter for a number of years with the provincial press. In the early 1980's he moved to RTE (National Television Broadcaster) and worked for five years as a researcher with the current affairs flagship programme To-day To-night covering the Northern Ireland conflict on a regular basis. In the early 1990's he spent 2 years researching the Dublin and Monaghan bombings documentary "The Forgotten Massacre" for the British TV Broadcaster Yorkshire Television. Later he spent two years researching various aspects of the Northern conflict for Channel 4 television in London.

He has also researched short-term projects on the conflict for the B.B.C. Ulster Television and Canadian Television. During this long and varied career Joe Tiernan has interviewed dozens (possibly even hundreds) of senior paramilitary figures from both sides including many figures from within the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) including many of the Dublin/Monaghan bombers), the Ulster Defence association (UDA) Red Hand Commando, the IRA, INLA, Real IRA, Continuity IRA.

He has also interviewed and gained the confidence of many members of the security forces North and South including the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), now the PSNI including members of the CID and the Special Branch Divisions, the Ulster Defence Regiment UDR (now the RIR,) and the Garda Siochana. Joe Tiernan is now one of the world's leading authorities on the Northern Ireland conflict.

he called to my door today and gave me the book he has written on the dublin and monaghan bombings and said the likes of easons wont stock it because those who did it were never convicted or have died since it happenned.is that right?? i know many who were affected by the dublin bombings.why should easons have the right to refuse to stock it?? am i missing something??

Oh he called one day to my house and gave it to my Mam too and said the same story.

Was he hanging around looking for money too though?

Oh right, just had a google.

It's because of legal implications, he names who he thinks is responsible.

Also, he seems to ask people for a contribution according to others as he publishes the book himself.

You got off lightly!

The people that he accuses of the bombings are also dead, and a lot of his findings come from hearsay..
Could be Politics at play here as well, apparenetly the Gardai and the RUC knew who planted the bombs, Seamus Ludlow was murdered in Louth by what was supposed to be an IRA gang, his name was smeared by both The Gardai and the RUC who claimed he was an informer...
It later transpired according to Tiernan that the same loyalist gang who planted the bombs also murdered Seamus, and the Gardai have always refused to hand over information that could prove this.

I havent heard of this journalist, but sometimes they have their ears to the ground and know a lot more about stuff than they are permitted to write about (actually, you can say that right across the board for people that manage to penetrate different fractions of society). I wouldnt mind reading this book, although would keep an open mind......... and certainly wouldnt mind offering a donation to someone who had managed to write, publish and distribute a book off his own back..... a true account or complete shyte?... I'd give it my time.

Is this the conspiracy theory that MI6 orchestrated the Dublin bombings?

If so, it's likely to be true, they may have.

The state are supposed to have hired 'The Jackal' as he was known to carry out murders in N Ireland, he was also supposed to have planned the Dublin and Monaghan bombings, plus the gruesome attack on the Miami Showband.. A prominent Major in the British Army, claimed that 'The Jackal' was protected by the state..
