Kieran Wylie's murder by the dissident republican ONH (Oglaigh na hEireann) gang should finally dispel any notion that it is on ceasefire.

The organisation - born out of a split in the Real IRA a decade ago - declared an end to its violent campaign in January 2018.

Crucially though, the announcement was directed only at what it termed "the British state".
