Who’s Next?

“Scap. Donaldson. Who’s next???” In May 2003, the IRA’s head of Internal Security, Freddie Scappaticci, was named in the press as an British informer. His denials were accepted by the IRA and he remained in the North. For Denis Donaldson, see Dead Man Walking. These graffiti are at the top of Stanleys Walk, Derry.
