Is it not high time that the Irish People were told who commanded the IRA, who served in in it, and who carried out what operations supposedly to win freedom from the Brits on our behalf?

The reality is that the armed Struggle destroyed any prospect of a united Ireland within the lifetime of anyone living, "one corpse at a time" as former Taoiseach Liam Cosgrave put it.

For many years Sinn Féin seemed to divine the mind of the IRA yet they maintain to know nothing of the leadership of the IRA. Sinn Féin negotiated the Good Friday Agreement on behalf of the IRA yet they pretend not to know who the IRA were!

It is time we were told who did all the killing in our name, and that those who did the killing put their hands up if Sinn Féin is to have any future in democratic politics!

Yes and also the state should seek to recoup the loss of taxpayers money in fighting SF/IRA criminality.

I demand to know which members of the current government were in the Official IRA as well. And how many previous members of previous Dails were in the IRA. I heard a disturbing rumour that many in the First Dail were IRA men as well. Oh noezzzz!!!! :|

Please distinguish between what was done in your name and what was done in the name of the victims of tyranny.

Why are the people not informed who fought a war in their name?
Maybe because membership, past or present, of an illegal paramilitary organisation can put you in prison is why.

Has a secret opinion poll just been taken giving SF huge gains that only blueshirts have access to ? Why all the anti SF stuff from our FG overlords?
