Welcome back to Hidden Histories of the Northern Ireland Troubles. It has been a long six months since the last episode was released. I apologise for the silence, but other things - day to day life mainly - took over. In the past few weeks I decided to resurrect HH and set up a GoFundMe page https://www.gofundme.com/hidden-histories-of-the-northern-ireland-troubles People have been extremely generous with their contributions and I have been able to renew a full subscription for SoundCloud and cover some travel costs for future episodes. I have big plans for the podcast and the first couple of episodes I have confirmed for the next series (well, the first proper series) are very exciting. I have decided to release part of an interview I conducted in my home in September 2013 with the late and sadly missed Henry Sinnerton. Henry was a fantastic educationalist who wrote the biography of David Ervine, 'Uncharted Waters'. In 2013 Henry talked to me about teaching in Orangefield Boys' Secondary in East Belfast during the period when the Tartan gangs emerged. He also described the effect of the UWC strike in May 1974 on his ability to get to work. This special interim episode is dedicated to Henry and also to Lyra McKee. Lyra was scheduled to me my sixth guest before she was cruelly murdered in April. *Excerpt of 'Correct Your Fireside Manner' by Ruefrex included at beginning of episode as theme (with permission of Paul Burgess)
