Struggling against prison in the north of Ireland – Interview with Feargal Mac Ionnrachtaigh

This bonus interview comes direct to you from Belfast, as Heledd sits down to chat with Feargal Mac Ionnrachtaigh, whose incredible book ‘Language, Resistance and Revival: Republican Prisoners and the Irish Language in the North of Ireland’ documents the developments inside prisons like Long Kesh during the struggle against the British State.

We’re incredibly privileged to have a chance to speak to Feargal, and really grateful to be able to share it with you. It’s a powerful reminder that the prison system we struggle with today is inextricably linked to colonialism.

As ever, please let us know what you think of the podcast, and drop us a message on twitter (@CAPExpansion) or on Facebook  – we love to hear your thoughts and want to keep making this podcast better!
