I’m as susceptible to following a good online row as any other Seán or Síle Citizen, though in the case of the very public disagreements between the Irish Republican writer and historian Anthony McIntyre and the journalists Ciarán Barnes and Allison Morris it rises above mere voyeurism. So far it has got quite nasty with both a personal and political edge to it all since it touches upon the controversy swirling around the so-called Boston College Archive (for which see more here).

For an insight into some of the back-story and the inner workings of Irish journalism I’d recommend the following:
