Officials still seek BC tapes on IRA

A federal prosecutor said Monday that authorities are still entitled to materials from a Boston College oral history project documenting the Irish Troubles, despite the death last month of a key participant in the endeavor.

Assistant US Attorney ­Randall E. Kromm wrote in a filing with the US Court of ­Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston that BC incorrectly stated last month that the case was moot after the death of Dolours Price, a former Irish Republican Army member who was inter­viewed by researchers of the college’s Belfast Project.
