Here's an example of his work:
But I am sure most people were unaware of his interest in Irish politics until v. recently. He's recently stood bail for an IRA operative implicated in the Hyde Park bombing. And now we find out from Wiki:
'During the late 1980s, when he was managing news editor of The Sunday Times, he secretly wrote for 'An Phoblacht', the Sinn Fein newspaper, which served as a propaganda sheet for the Provisional IRA. His pseudonym was 'George King'. This was exposed by Nick Davies, a Guardian colleague and instigator of the journalistic investigation into phone hacking. When Greenslade reviewed Davies's book on his blog in 2008, he did not deny his writings for An Phoblacht. Greenslade also spoke at a Sinn Fein conference in London on the 30th anniversary of the hunger strikes, and he wrote an article on the same subject for An Phoblacht . He has had a house in County Donegal for many years, and a close personal friend is Pat Doherty, whom from 1988 until 2009 was vice president of Sinn Fein, and who has been publicly named as a former member of the IRA Army Council.'
Whatever one thinks about the Sinn Fein connection, I find the Donegal Dynamic just as interesting!
