Mahon, Thomas & Gillogly, Jim

Tom Mahon is originally from Dublin, though his grandfather was Tom Crofts from Cork, a well known IRA and Fianna Fáil personality of the time. Tom graduated from UCD as a medical doctor in 1983, becoming a Fellow of Royal College of Radiologists in 1988 and in 1993 a member of the American Board of Radiology. He is a consultant radiologist in Hawaii, where he lives with his wife and 10 year old son Tommy. He has been researching the IRA for a number of years at archives throughout Ireland. He started working on these documents in the autumn of 2004 before making contact with Jim early in 2005. One of the foremost crytologists in the USA, Jim Gillogly has had a long history with both computers and cryptology. He has worked at RAND, gained a PhD from Carnegie Mellon University and cracked some of the world's most mysterious codes.
