Provisional IRA training new dissident group

Published 07/03/2013

The Belfast Telegraph published an article by Tom Brady (News, January 22), which reported that the Garda had revealed that Provisional IRA members – thought to have 'gone away' – were training the dissident IRA in waging a new terror campaign in Northern Ireland.

Well, it looks like the Garda were right, as the recent interception of the mortar tubes and bombs in Londonderry proves.

This deadly device was a PIRA invention. It now appears that PIRA has trained the 'New' PIRA in the manufacture and use of this same terror weapon.
