    I think it's a response to the IRA recently killing this guy who mouthed off to one of them in a bar. The guys sisters have had a vendetta against the IRA ever since and are calling for people who know anything about the case to speak up.
    I assume the graffitti is the IRA advising people to keep thier mouths shut.

    Sorry about the size, photo bucket resizes them

    So have you got "romantic" notions of the IRA?

    The guy didnt even mouth off to them, he spilt someones drink, apologised and offered to replace it, and was murdered.

    At the end of the day, the IRA are still a terrorist orgainisation and they have close links to the Sinn Fein political party.

    The IRA arent romantic, they're just a bunch of hooligans who think they can go around bullying people and abuse their power

    (okay well, not a million miles away from real politicans)

    How their politicians have a foot to stand on when they openly admit links to an organised crime/terrorist syndicate is beyond me.

    In fact what you cant read is that one of the Sinn Fein Candidates, a 23 year old female, that's running for election, was actually in that bar drinking that night. Apparently "she saw nothing" That just takes the piss.

    Just to add, i am English and i have no affliliation to either side.

    "The guy didnt even mouth off to them, he spilt someones drink, apologised and offered to replace it, and was murdered."

    Thats sounds about like what I read. For that I say fuck the people who did it, thats some uncalled for bully shit.

    "At the end of the day, the IRA are still a terrorist orgainisation and they have close links to the Sinn Fein political party"

    "How their politicians have a foot to stand on when they openly admit links to an organised crime/terrorist syndicate is beyond me."

    I don't know about that terrorist shit. "Terrorist" is generally a term right wingers and politicians use as an excuse to explain why they should be allowed to do all sorts of terrible shit in the name of national security.It doesnt seem to have too much of a usefull meaning anymore.
    And I really don't care about the "crime syndicate" label either.
    If I had a fondness for law enforcement I wouldn't be on a web site dedicated to "vandalism".

    I'd be happy to say that the IRA have done bogus shit for a noble cause and seem to have a little too much time on thier hands lately.

    The IRA is the result of the longest running colonization in history. Much of the IRAs support comes from the USA.

    I hope that is not meant to be supporting the IRA. Do you actually have any idea how many people were killed by IRA bombs in the UK?
    Far more than you can imagine, a whole country was in fear over IRA bomb threats, For fuck sake I had bomb drills at school.

    What? I'm just stating the facts, I'm not supporting the IRA. It is the result of the UKs colonization of Ireland.... longest running colony in history. Did you not expect a highly organized resistence movement to develop? What do you expect?

    Anti-terrorism police have warned that dissident Irish republicans may be planning attacks in Britain in the run-up to a general election.

    Looks like they might start bombing here again....

    well, in the face of an unaknowledged genocide the Brits committed in Ireland I'd say its all fair game. You move into a nation and take it's land by force and export the food supply leaving it's indigenous people to starve to death in shacks I would say you are gonna have some pissed off movements. Also consider the IRA was peaceful until the Bloody Sunday massacre where they were pushed into the wall and decide to start pushing back. The Brits, America, Spain, ect are all vicious imperials and you can't get upset at the groups which rise to fight them because they have nothing left but the fight for their home and freedom.
    I dont know anything about that particular incident but sounds lame ass and could discredit them greatly.

    Shut up. Back when this "colonization" happened, there was no "Ireland".

    The US was colonized far more recently than Ireland - do you deserve to be shot?


    All you bleating fuck heads in this thread have no clue as to what the Ra are actually about now. They aren't liberating army - they are drug dealing, child murdering scum - with more involvement in serious organised crime than anything else. Hush up - you are just parading your ignorance.

    "well, in the face of an unaknowledged genocide the Brits committed in Ireland I'd say its all fair game."
    how does this tripe justify murdering a man for spilling a pint? moron.


    And before you start spouting shite at me you might want to bear in mind I LIVE in the Republic....
