Pól Ó Lorcáin
Paul Larkin

Chroniclers are privileged to enter where they list, to come and go through keyholes, to ride upon the wind, to overcome in their soarings up and down, all obstacles of distance, time and place.
Charles Dickens - Barnaby Rudge, Chapter The Ninth

The Guardian's Ireland Correspondent - Henry McDonald and censorship

Paul Larkin is a former BBC and RTÉ journalist and film maker. Larkin won the Liam Hourican European Journalist of the Year award in 1997. Larkin’s book on collusion between elements of the British security services and loyalist death squads (A Very British Jihad - Beyond The Pale, Belfast 2004) is widely acknowledged to be a ground breaking work with regards to the anti Irish and anti Catholic prejudice that lies at the heart of the state collusion story. In 2008, Larkin won the Best Director International Documentary award at the New York Independent Film Festival for his film Imeacht na nIarlaí - The Flight of the Earls, which was in Irish (Gaeilge), English and Spanish and starred Stephen Rea as Aodh Mór Ó Neill - Hugh O'Neill.

References to Henry McDonald’s book Colours, refer to the 2005 paperback version and references to his follow up book Gunsmoke and Mirrors to the 2008 hardback version. The word Sticky is a reference to Workers Party members in Ireland.
