MacBride and the Irish Government

MacBride and the Irish Government

(p.129) Chapter Four MacBride and the Irish Government
The Macbride Principles

This chapter describes how the publication of the MacBride Principles placed the Irish government in a difficult position. The Irish government did not wish to antagonise the UK. It did not want the perception that it was, particularly covertly, encouraging support for the MacBride campaign. However, it could not ignore the moral implications of the MacBride campaign and its importance to Irish-America.
