Can't see any reason as to why the Provos wouldn't let him back now. He has not broken the law of the land by informing, indeed he went to the RUC who Adams and Co are advocating - he was just a little ahead of his time. The Provisional IRA are no more they have surrendered their weapons and are no longer engaged in acts of violence, so I would imagine Gerry and Martin and their Psf dupes will be more than glad to welcome him back!

This is just another one of the wee facts that the provisional movement will have to come to terms with.

To this day, his name is still used in Derry as an insult for touters, squealers and the kind of people that go running to mammy to tell...

Is he planning on coming back to live in the city? :shock: He'd be mad. Loads of people want a piece of him, by no means all of them Shinners.

If he comes back he'll inevitably be shot... next DUP reason to block powersharing? Though the irony will be... SF will be calling on people with information to go to the Peelers. :|

I'm sure there are hundreds of similar cases, watching the developments since last Sundays U turn. I don't believe he will be in any danger from Provisional elements, but he'll get a kickin every time he goes for a pint and will eventually end up blasted by a shotgun. Another Derry informer Pat Moore, is supposed to have cancer. There is talk he also wishes to return. (Don't know why. The place is a shithole) :lol:

If the war is really over, he should be able to return home without any fear of reprisal or is it a case that people are saying as Gerry Adams famously once said "They haven't gone away, you know!"

You would have to understand the damage he did to many people and their families because of his actions, there would alot of resentment against him even today.

Ah give it a rest you monomaniacal eejit.

Gilmour was a supergrass, and lots of the people he was willing to testify against in court and send down for decades had nothing at all to do with any armed group. He used the opportunity to settle personal grudges, or even finger some totally random dude to get his "quota" up.

Lots and lots of families in Derry went through hell because of him. The old "no smoke without fire" rumour-mill ruined some completely innocent people's careers - "respectable" employers refused to give them a job after they'd been fingered by Gilmour and the other supergrasses.

A lot of ordinary people in Derry with no paramilitary connections whatsoever would cheerfully take a two-by-four to Gilmour if they saw him.

Here endeth your reality check for today. You can go back to one-note obsessive babbling now.

True. Mind you he never fingered Mc Guinness. Hmmmm. Or was directed not to finger him.

We have been told here in Limerick to get over ourselves and forget the damage done to the family of Jerry McCabe by the "Castlerea Four" and I can tell you there's a lot of resentment towards Sinn Fein here because of their constant campaigning for their premature release.

If anybody should choose to do harm to this filth they would do well to remember there is now peelers in every bar in the six counties, not to mention on every taxi rank and street corner looking to score browny points with their new masters.

Whilst what you say is true, jimmyd, I certainly won't do anything by word or deed to discourage anyone from executing informers.

What about the informer that led to the capture of ammunition etc and the arrest and sentencing of two men in Sligo on September 6th 2003?
