    That's nice to know... :roll:
  2. WTF is 'a former IRA activist'.
  3. The IRA lost. Blair tried his upmost to reverse that with concession after concession. The "Bhoys" are obviously a bit p1ssed of with the loss of cudos and respect from the rest of the population and are trying to retain a bit of it.

    Fcuk them, with a bit of luck they'll go back to internal feuding and hopefully they'll start killing each other again.

    I wonder if they are checking to see if they are involved in organised crime . . . oh, no, that would be a backward step.
  5. They are still getting what they want - of course they don't need to resort to overt violence. Just wait until the government cannot cross a morale line (unlikely - I know!) or grows the balls to stand up to threats.

    If I carry a baseball bat, ask you to give me money but don't use it provided you do as you're told - what have I done wrong? If it is still theft then PIRA are still terrorists.

    Leopards, spots etc etc
  7. "IRA still clean"...Yeah and I'm shagging Kylie Minogue and The Cheeky Girls in a foursome.
  8. They're as clean as Amy Whinehouse, and Pete Doherty rolled into one.
  9. coming from norn iron i can say i dont really care about the ira we have all these russian,litho,porto,polish gangs to worry about now
  10. They are living in the past. Now that their opinion no longer matters, I see the the Criminal Assets Bureau is starting to take after them. It's only a matter of time before they are siting on O Connell Bridge with a plackard "Former Terrorist, Wife and 2 kids to feed" I hope! (Although I see that only 7 people have been done for fuel laundering in border areas, despite lots of raids and seizures)
  11. Whats Martin Meehan's wife getting for Christmas? A smaller fcuking turkey.

    Heart attack kills ex-Provo Meehan

    Monday, November 05, 2007

    Up to 250 republicans held a minute's silence in memory of former IRA man Martin Meehan yesterday.

    Mr Meehan (62) suffered a heart attack at his home on Saturday.

    Sinn Fein party president Gerry Adams joined MLA Alex Maskey, Bobby Storey - the recently appointed chairman of Sinn Fein's Belfast executive - councillors and party activists for the tribute at a party strategy meeting in Belfast yesterday.

    A photograph of Mr Meehan and his wife Briege was projected onto a large screen during the sombre meeting at St Kevin's Hall, North Queen Street.

    Mr Meehan joined the IRA in 1966 and sided with the Provisional IRA faction when it split four years later.

    In the weeks that followed internment, Mr Meehan was reputed to be the most wanted IRA man in Belfast.He was eventually detained in Crumlin Road Jail in 1971.

    He escaped with two IRA colleagues that year by hiding in a manhole for six and a half hours. As they waited to scale a prison wall, the escapees covered themselves in butter to keep warm.

    Mr Meehan fled to Dundalk and was arrested south of the border in 1972 with seven colleagues after a four-hour gun battle over the border with a British Army platoon.

    He returned to Northern Ireland and spent three years in prison. The veteran republican had other jail terms before he was eventually released in January 1994.

    He played an active role in Sinn Fein and was a councillor in Antrim.

    Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams expressed deep shock and sadness at Mr Meehan's death, describing him as an "exemplary republican".
  13. Cracking one mate :lol:

    I wonder if his missus is game for a sympathy shag just to help her forget :wink:

  14. Fastmedic - have you seen his wife?

    You would be a brave man if you did shag her!!
