Concubhar O Liathain: One-sided IRA documentary is a stain on TG4's good record

First episode of series on women in illegal organisation dealt cruel blow to victims, writes Concubhar O Liathain

Dr Rose Dugdale was arrested in 1974 for her part in the robbery of several old masters from Russborough House in Co Wicklow and the attempted bombing from the air of Strabane RUC station.

The robbery of the Beit art collection involved the assault of the owners by Dr Dugdale and her accomplices.

Decades later, she turned up on TG4 last week to retrospectively justify her actions. It certainly soured Nollaig na mBan for me, following what was a very successful Christmas season of programmes on TG4.
