Carrie Twomey: Release Of Irish Archives Would Put My Husband's Life In Jeopardy
Boston CollegeOver some three decades,more than 3,000 people died as a result of the troubles in Northern Ireland. It was an insidious conflict that pitted Catholics against Protestants, Republicans against Loyalists, neighbor against neighbor. Now, 12 years after the Good Friday Agreement finally brought peace, a legal case involving Boston College (left) is threatening to revive a past that some would prefer to leave behind. During the peace process, Boston College collected interviews with former Irish paramilitaries for historical posterity. In exchange, BC pledged to keep the interviews sealed until all involved had died. But the British government now believes some of those interviews may shed light on 40-year-old unsolved murder case — and US prosecutors are demanding access on their behalf. Today, a federal judge will hear arguments on whether Boston College should be forced to divulge some of those interviews.

Guest:
  Carrie Twomey, is the US citizen wife of Dr. Anthony McIntyre, who is the main researcher of the Oral History project at Boston College. She says such therelease could revive old vendettas and potentially put people’s lives in danger.
