(p.13) Chapter One The Origin of the MacBride Principles
The Macbride Principles

This chapter traces the origins of the MacBride Principles. According to Reverend Sean McManus, President of the Irish National Caucus, the MacBride Principles ‘were “conceived” in August 1979; “born” in June 1983; and “christened” in November 1984’. However, it was not quite so simple. These were three significant dates, but there was a long history of endeavour by many others. The discussions include the Sullivan Principles, which some claim to be the basis of the MacBride Principles; and the MacBride campaign.
