BC is ordered to turn over IRA materials

A federal judge has ordered Boston College to turn over recorded interviews of a former member of the Provisional Irish Republican Army to federal prosecutors in Boston, who had subpoenaed the material on behalf of British authorities investigating crimes during the sectarian fight for control of Northern Ireland.

In his three-page ruling issued Tuesday, Judge William G. Young of federal court in Boston directed the school to turn over the materials by tomorrow. They include recordings, transcripts, and other items related to the former IRA member, Dolours Price, who has acknowledged being involved in numerous crimes committed during the era.
