Anne Cadwallader

Anne Cadwallader

Anne Cadwallader, originally from London, was an investigative journalist for 40 years in Ireland, reporting, often at great personal risk, on the 'troubles' in Northern Ireland. She produced contributions for the BBC, The Irish Press, Independent Network News, Reuters, and RTÉ. Anne Cadwallader is the author of Holy Cross: The Untold Story (Brehon Press, 2004) and Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland (Mercier Press, 2013). In 2009 she left journalism to work as an investigator and case worker at the Pat Finucane Centre for Human Rights; a non-party political, anti-sectarian human rights group advocating non-violent resolutions of conflict. More recently, Anne Cadwallader has written articles for Tribune magazine.

This archive represents a short synopsis of Anne Cadwallader’s experiences and the stories she covered. It contains some items of paper ephemera, as well as objects collected during her career. Contents include media and conference passes, including a pass for the Bloody Sunday Trust, an Independent News Network reporter's microphone used in her broadcast reports, letters commending her courage and quality of reporting, and objects thrown at women and children during the Holy Cross protests, which she covered in her book Holy Cross: The Untold Story
