The emergence of the old-style, kill the brits, defend the catholics, provos came as a relief to them.
What could be wrong with defending the Catholics? What did YOU do to defend the Catholics? If, as I suspect, you did nothing, why do you pass judgement on those who did? Why can you Staters neither put up nor shut up?

@2.38 old IRA veterans give their opinion on the issue.



The Old IRA react to the Provisional IRA

“I’m not going to criticise men who are fighting…”
- Martin Walton(I believe he was the founder of Waltons music shop in Dublin)

“I don’t agree with the tactics… I don’t agree with them. Too many innocent people getting knocked out.”
- Matt Flood

“I cannot stand it. I have no sympathy with it in any shape or form.”
- R. McCorley

“They should never have been allowed to call themselves IRA men at all…”
Vinny Byrne

“They are preventing the ultimate Union of the Irish people… Hearts and minds… We have two traditions and they must be welded…”
- Sean MacEntree
Were any of these people living under Prod tyranny? Why are their opinions considered relevant?

Thanks very much for sharing that with us! Very interesting.

During the Border Campaign the IRA flying column men apparently wore military uniforms with tricolour patches to conform to the Geneva Convention ffs. And that campaign was mad (and included bombings), but it wasn't as cruel and callous as the Provos' decades of futile violence.

Some Provisional's wore identifying tags in the 70's. I think Francis Hughes was one who did so? I dunno. Would that not be a bit self-defeating, in the same way it would have been self-defeating for Vinny Byrne to wear identifying tags on Bloody Sunday?

Did the inquest into his death not determine that his death had been in breach of the terms of the Geneva Convention, and the recognized code of conduct during conflict? That is an admission that they were at war in Ireland, but if they weren't at war with the Irish State, who collaborated with them, who and what were they at war with?

75- you were on about the Provos going after Joe McCann in 72- if the Brits had not have killed him the feud could have been avoided three years later-

If the PIRA had the chance they would have shot McCann.

Monday 8 March 1971

Monday 19 June 1972
Desmond Mackin (37), a Catholic civilian, was shot dead by the Provisional Irish Republican Army (PIRA) in the Cracked Cup Social Club, Leeson Street, Lower Falls, Belfast. Mackin was involved in an altercation with PIRA members, part of an feud between the Official Irish Republican Army (OIRA) and the Provisionals.

Friday 21 July 1972
Joseph Rosato (59), a Catholic civilian, was shot dead by the Provisional Irish Republican Army (PIRA) at his home, Deerpark Road, Belfast. Rosato was the father of the intended target and the killing was part of a feud between the Official Irish Republican Army (OIRA) and the PIRA.
