Dissident Republicans to Target Finance Workers
Terrorist group's use of under-car bombs a particular concern for gardai

Dissident republican terrorists are plotting to murder senior banking or finance figures using car bombs of the same type as used in three attacks on PSNI members, gardai believe.
Cusack cites the Real IRA threat made earlier this year against bankers but fails to mention that this threat was made in a 'British' context and specifically referred to the City of London. Amongst other incidents, Cusack mentions the bomb that recently damaged a branch of the Ulster Bank in Derry and the undercar booby-trap bomb which maimed a PSNI officer in County Antrim in January this year. He then goes on to focus on acts of civil disobedience carried out by éirígí in Dublin of late.

The whole tone of the article is to suggest that finance workers in the 26 counties are under serious threat of violence (including undercar booby-trap bombs) from dissident republican organisations such as éirígí, which is a purely political organisation. It is deeply deeply disingenuous stuff, which might scare people who do not know any better.

How much IRA wealth was eroded as result of the Iish banking crisis. Were they heavily exposed to Anglo?

How often have one of Cusack's story gone beyond the Sunday Indo. None that I know. They tend to vanish in to thin air come Monday.

Yet another example of a lack of standards in Irish professional life.

Cusack must be taking grinds from Paul Williams - in never land!
