Anarcho-syndicalism in Ireland, 1984-2016

The Irish Anarchist History Archive has just posted a chronology of Belfast SelFed's forerunner groupings and pdfs of their publications.

Enjoyed reading this. Pity that Jerry and his brother did not stay the course.

It would be great to have that, and any of the publications mentioned, up in our history section if anyone has time to copy it over.

That said, I believe one bit is a mistake. It refers to the Anarchist Federation (Ireland) and says he was close to the UK AF. However to my recollection the AF was called the Anarchist Federation of Britain and Ireland, which does seem to be backed up both by Wikipedia and the old AF website: http://flag.blackened.net/af/ireland/about_us.html

Yes, more than close, it was basically the AF in Ireland. It was the initiative of an AF member in Warrenpoint, a good mate of mine who used to post on here under the name 'malatested'. The AF(I) later separated from the AF(GB) when it merged with the Organise group.
