Sean O'Callaghan inverted our idea of an IRA informer. Rejecting the role of despised tout, he finished as a flawed, tragic hero, at least in my eyes.

Luckily I am not alone. As Brian Hayes MEP remarked, the Provos hated Sean O'Callaghan as much as they hated Fr Denis Faul.

That's why the Provo propaganda machine is pumping out the Walter Mitty smear. If O'Callaghan had not hurt them so badly they would not bother.
