FTFA:
But there is another message in these bombs, despite their failure. It is that nearly 150 years after the Fenians bombed Clerkenwell and killed 12 people, there are still Irish republicans who want to bomb on, however hopelessly, if only to keep a militant tradition alive.

I said "Hey London, I'm just carryin' on an old family tradition..."

I feel like the Modmins used to correct errata before greenlighting headlines. Whatever happened to that?

I'm always willing to raise some money for those great patriots.

I'm sure there are some guys in Manchester who know bomb-craft well enough to teach them.

I've visited Northern Ireland on vacation.  It's a lovely place.  However, it's a cool climate, so Mrs Sinanju and I went in the summer.  We were in Belfast for Eleventh Night, were on our way out of town for the start of the Orange parades, and spent a few nights in a B&B in The Bogside in Derry.  It's amazing how just below the surface The Troubles are and, in the case of Eleventh Night, how dramatically one is reminded of them.  It's going to be a number of generations before the Orange parades are just things a handful of strange old men do.

A lot of people in both Ireland and England are probably thinking (and saying) "Bollocks, not *this* shiate again! Go drown yerselves in a barrel of whiskey and let the rest of us get on with our lives, ya bloody wankers!"

The recipe for an Irish car bomb is easy:

Guinness
Baileys
Jameson

Come on guys, get it together.

Definitely not the IRA. It was dissident republicans calling themselves the IRA. And they're all probably missing their kneecaps right now for using the RA's name.
