Sinn Fein TD, from left,:  Matt Carthy, Louise Reilly, Pearse Doherty and Eoin Ó Broin, the party’s negotiating team to help forma new government.


Commenting after being told by the PSNI that the dissident Republican group New IRA is planning a bomb attack on the car of a Sinn Féin member, the party’s deputy leader Michelle O Neill said:

“We have been told this planned attack could happen anywhere in the north.
This is literally a threat against thousands of Sinn Féin members and their families in the north.
…This latest threat shows once again that these groups are in conflict with their own community.
…Let me be very clear. Sinn Féin will not be deterred from pursuing our objective of a united Ireland.”

Bomb threat against Sinn Féin members must be lifted – O’Neill (Sinn Féin)

    Wait, the New IRA want to bomb SF to prevent SF campaigning for a United Ireland? Is a United Ireland not, presumably, the main aim of the New IRA?

      Firstly you need to remember that the New IRA/dissident republicans are absolutely mental.

      Secondly, they believe that only force/terror will get the UK out of Ireland and that anyone having meetings about keeping the peace are just getting in the way of that.
