There seems to be a little debate about whether or not the IRA has black members.
I served at the Maze Prison/Long Kesh, in early 1974. We were relieving the bods on 'Towers TWO', when we actually stopped walking the catwalk inside the prison, such was the shock from us 'squaddies'.
There was a black/negro in an IRA cage next to Gerry Adam's compound SIX.
This was before the H-Blocks.
We asked what this was all about , apparently, the negro was an American who had fought in Viet Nam and was in the IRA. He must have been a trotskyist Communist.
