McCann, Michael

A native of West Belfast, Michael McCann experienced the events of August 1969 at first hand. He brings an intimate and unrivalled local knowledge to this study. Furthermore, McCann has personally gathered over thirty retrospective eyewitness interviews during his exhaustive research, which included the first and only in-depth analysis of the evidence gathered for the Scarman tribunal, augmented by hitherto undiscovered or occluded state and legal archives, copies of which are in the possession of the author. Michael holds a degree and Masters in History from Queen’s University Belfast
