Tony Geraghty is a British-Irish writer and journalist.

Geraghty was born in Liverpool, England to an Irish Catholic family. He was educated at the London Oratory.

During the Falls Curfew in July 1970, while on assignment for the Sunday Times, Geraghty was arrested at gunpoint by a British soldier and charged with impeding the army by being on the street against a military order, which carried an automatic prison sentence on conviction. In September 1970 a magistrate ruled he had no case to answer, and acquitted him.

His 1998 book The Irish War: The Hidden Conflict Between the IRA and British Intelligence was written following research which included interviews with members of British Intelligence, the security forces, and the Provisional Irish Republican Army. It describes the various tactics, both military and political, used by the protagonists in the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

Publisher's Weekly called the book "highly opinionated" but praised "its attention to detail and its direct, potent writing." Library Journal said "[t]he role of British Intelligence in Ulster has never been so deeply explored". Tony Geraghty

On 3 December 1998 Geraghty's house was searched and he was interviewed by the Ministry of Defence police and in May 1999, he was charged with breaching the Official Secrets Act on the basis that he quoted from classified army documents in the book. The army was concerned that in mentioning their Caister/Crucible computer intelligence databases for tracking the population of Northern Ireland, and the Vengeful-Glutton number plate recognition and vehicle tracking system, he might have been in possession of copies of the documents.

The case was dropped in November 2000. New Statesman - Writers: guilty until found innocent The Queen v. Wylde: The camera in the grocery shop British Journalism Review Vol. 10, No. 2, 1999 - The sub-secret underworld of the D-Notice business
