The Social Democratic and Labour Party (SDLP) was formed in 1970 out of the civil rights movement, and many of its key founders have subsequently written memoirs reflecting upon their experience as representatives of the Catholic Irish nationalist minority in Northern Ireland. This chapter investigates the differences in interpretation of SDLP protagonists, compared to those within the unionist community, and also the Republican movement. The key figures studied in detail in this chapter include Paddy Devlin, Paddy O’Hanlon and Austin Currie, as well as John Hume and Bernadette Devlin.

Keywords:   Social Democratic and Labour Party, Civil rights movement, Catholic Irish nationalism, Paddy Devlin, Paddy O’Hanlon, Austin Currie, John Hume, Bernadette Devlin
