Dealings between the IRA and MI6 go back to the early 1970’s when the intelligence agency operated out of a house in Hollywood, Co Down known as Laneside. In 1974 and 1975 a Foreign Office diplomat, James Allen and a senior MI6 man, Michael Oatley regularly met IRA leaders there during what became known as "the Feakle ceasefire".[1]
