• Edmundo Murray deposited Explosive Journey: Perceptions of Latin America in the FARC-IRA Affair (2001-2005) in the group Group logo of HistoryHistory on Humanities Commons 2 years, 7 months ago

    The IRA’s alleged connections with FARC, which surfaced in 2001 and continue to appear in the Irish and Colombian media, are an ideal opportunity to analyse perceptions of Latin America in Ireland. Newspaper articles, personal interviews, and the judgement of the Appeals Court in Bogotá have been used to study different attitudes in this puzzling affair, which can be viewed as one of the lowest points in Irish relations with Colombia – and perhaps with Latin America as a whole.
