This chapter analyses the memoirs written by a number of print and broadcast journalists, who have reported from Northern Ireland during the violent conflict of the Troubles. The chapter interprets these sources according to a range of criteria: the extent to which the journalist is an ‘insider’ or an ‘outsider’; the spatial and temporal dimensions of their experiences; the ways in which these memoirs reflect upon the role of the journalist in a zone of conflict. The chapter focuses upon a number of contributions to this sub-genre: John Conroy; Mark Devenport; Henry McDonald; Malachi O’Doherty; Kevin Myers.

Keywords:   Journalistic memoirs, Insiders/outsiders and the Troubles, Reporting violent conflict, John Conroy, Mark Devenport, Henry McDonald, Malachi O’Doherty, Kevin Myers
