Alan The Anarchist.

In Blog, History, Politicsby Rashers Tierney1 Comment


Alan Mac Simoin is a long time Dublin anarchist with a rapturous wit and way of telling stories that has made many the traditional post-meeting pint a real pleasure for this writer.

Here he’s interviewed on camera for the *takes a deep breath* Irish Republican Marxist History Project. From the acrid splits in republicanism after the Civil Rights movement, to the battle of Carnsore Point that rid Ireland of nuclear power to the family tree of the modern left’s alphabet soup: few would have as much insight from personal experience as Alan and he is never shy to share with younger generations of activists.
