The Spies at Gilnahirk

George Busby

Availability: Out of stock

That was a headline in the Belfast Telegraph in 1951 which reflected the reporter’s frustration at being unable to penetrate the veil of secrecy surrounding the discrete red brick buildings which nestled behind a security fence in the Castlereagh Hills.Even after the facility quietly closed its doors in 1978, no information on what had gone on there was forthcoming to the public until local man George Busby took an interest in 2004.

Now in The Spies at Gilnahirk George brings you the results of over ten years of research which reveal the fascinating story of not only the Gilnahirk wireless station, but also the network of secret listeners who, hunched over their radio sets in homes across the province, listened in to and recorded the enemy’s communications throughout the dark days of WWII and beyond.
