Gardai are investigating after the veteran republican - and former wife of well known actor Stephen Rea - was found dead from a suspected drugs overdose in Malahide, north Co Dublin.

It is understood that the body of Ms Price (62) - was found at her home on St Margaret's Road in Malahide at around 10pm.

Gardai say that there is nothing to indicate suspicious circumstances in relation to the sudden death of the well known Republican activist who had been in bad health for some time.

Price - who is believed to have been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder - was a convicted IRA car bomber who took part in a bombing attack on London's famous Old Bailey Court in 1973 in which more than 200 people were injured.

A senior source said: “She was found unconscious on her bed last night by her son. She has taken overdoses before so that is what is being looked at.”

Does this mean her taped interviews will now be released?
Depends on what sort of release she signed. I'd imagine it won't be a voluntary action by the college, that doesn't seem to have been the aim of the project.

Did you complain in the Bin Laden thread? Dont think too many will worry about a convicted terrorist.
I would not have supported her or her ilk, but that post is in very bad taste just hours after she died.

Such thoughtfulness was not offered to the victims of the Old Bailey bombings.

Dolours' sister, Marian Price, is a known associate of murdered Real IRA boss Alan Ryan.

The two sisters joined the IRA following the reintroduction of internment in 1971.

...

Ms Price came from a staunch republican background -- her father Albert was interned by the Irish government in the Curragh Camp in the 1950s for IRA activity.

Her aunt, Bridie Dolan, was also an active republican who was blinded when explosives she was handling went off prematurely.
Sounds like Republicanism was something of the family trade.

At 62 is not a great age. From Gerry Bradley's and Eamon Eamon Collins' memoirs it seems 'the cause' takes a lot out of you.
