This is worrying again, after police shootings, it seems that dissidents may be starting a return to a bombing campaign.

From other reports, a warning was given in advance (a typical tactic of republicans, IRA* use to give warnings all the time)

*Likely to be the Real IRA (the dissident group)

I'm hearing there has been an incident in Dublin


Army dismantles pipebomb in Fairview





The army bomb disposal team has dismantled one 'viable pipebomb' at Fairview Park in north Dublin.

It is currently working on two other suspect devices, making a total of three devices discovered at the location this morning.

The devices were discovered by a man out walking his dog at around 8am.

This is now breaking too...

Parties under paramiltary threat





Members of both the SDLP and Sinn Fein have been threatened by separate paramilitary organisations.

It is believed the threat to the SDLP comes from a breakaway group of the Ulster Defence Association.

An SDLP spokesman said police had warned them elements within the south-east Antrim area were planning an attack on a member of the party.

Northern Ireland news is coming on within afew minutes, i'll be able to find out more. Sadly, Skynews (aka British FOXNews) is too busy discussing pointless crap (again)

Oh hell. I'm sure I'm not the only one who remembers that awful phrase:

"Christmas bombing campaign"

Yeah, I'm older enough to remember that.

According to reports, a bomb was placed under a van (potential carbomb). Remote explosion has been carried out. Area is still closed off.

Hmm I thought it was all calm on the Emerald Isle.

What is the name of the (protestant?) paramilitary group? .. I know all about the IRA but I was unaware of any current operating protestant paramilitary groups in Ireland.

Also, would the bombs in Dublin appear to be IRA or another group?

It might not be related, but it's odd to have a security alert in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland at the same time.

i wonder if the pipe bombs in dublin might have been a dump, three pipe bombs in a park in november aren't going to do much more than scare the junkies.

i suspect they were meant for use by some gang or other but either hadn't been collected or had been forgotten.

could be.

Dubin does have a huge gang problem (former IRA members have gone into the Irish gangs after the peace process)

i believe they are also in the habit of selling their services, and it's not as if the paramiliteries were ever much more than a drugs gang themselves, either way, despite the decommishoning
there's quite a bit of ordinance and knowledge floating aroud ireland for a price.
