Patrick Ryan speaking with BBC reporter Jennifer O’Leary

Nelson McCausland: Patrick Ryan is a fanatic for whom human life means nothing, but when did he cease to be a Catholic priest? 

In spite of its title, Spotlight on the Troubles: A Secret History, there was not as much "secret history" as the title suggests. Moreover, the presentation was somewhat disjointed. However, there were some compelling moments and one of those was the interview with Patrick Ryan, the notorious Tipperary-born priest who was an IRA "ambassador" and "had a hand in" some of the worst IRA atrocities.
