This chapter traces the origins of the MacBride Principles. According to Reverend Sean McManus, President of the Irish National Caucus, the MacBride Principles ‘were “conceived” in August 1979; “born” in June 1983; and “christened” in November 1984’. However, it was not quite so simple. These were three significant dates, but there was a long history of endeavour by many others. The discussions include the Sullivan Principles, which some claim to be the basis of the MacBride Principles; and the MacBride campaign.
