IRA Threaten Gardai

The Evening Herald has reported that Gardai were forced to close down one of Dublin's main garda stations after IRA threats when officers arrested the main suspect for the murder of martial arts expert Jim Curran in the Green Lizard pub. The IRA man - linked both to the Provos and Real IRA as well as the INLA and who has worked in the past for Sinn Fein's Aengus O'Snodaigh - was detained last Saturday after going to his mother's funeral in Meath Street. Undercover detectives swooped when they spotted the suspect mingling with the crowd at the funeral.

There were angry scenes as members of the congregation threw stones and threatened officers, who were forced to draw their weapons in order to calm the crowd, which included many Sinn Fein activists. The suspect is still in custody and a decision will have to be made on whether he should be charged.

Proof, if any were needed, that the IRA is still very much involved in criminality.
