The Green Book (IRA)

The Green Book (IRA)

The IRA Green Book is a training and induction manual issued by the Irish Republican Army to new volunteers. It was used by the post-Irish Civil War Irish Republican Army (IRA) and Cumann na mBan, ("League of Women"), along with offspring groupings such as the Provisional IRA (PIRA). It includes a statement of military objectives, tactics and conditions for military victory against the British Army and their allies. In the IRA's and PIRA's understanding this military victory was to be achieved as part of "the ongoing liberation of Ireland from foreign occupiers". The Green Book has acted as a manual of conduct and induction to the organisation since at least the 1950s.

Famous quotes containing the words green and/or book:

    When in our music God is glorified,
    and adoration leaves no room for pride,
    it is as though the whole creation cried Alleluia!
    —Frederick Pratt Green (b. 1903)

    To revolutionize, at one effort, the universal world of human thought, human opinion, and human sentiment.... All that he has to do is to write and publish a very little book. Its title should be simple—a few plain words—”My Heart Laid Bare.” But—this little book must be true to its title.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
