Well ... put yourself in the shoes of someone responsible for internal security in the IRA. A very senior member apparently escapes from a British jail with a rather romantic story of the escape itself.
I don't know about anyone else but I'd have had him watched like a hawk, fed disinformation in order to see whether it sticks somewhere surprising and a few other tricks just to settle my mind that he hadn't been 'turned' or cut a deal.
Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.
