To end off the Festive Season there’s nothing better than a Whodunit and some facts that have been buried for close to half a century
After the Dublin-Monaghan Bombings the Garda inquiry led them to the RUC
The RUC did not initiate an inquiry, even though planning, procurement of cars, assembly of bombs, delivery of bombs and return of the perpetrators to Northern Ireland all occurred under their jurisdiction.
The film mentions involvement of
Capt Robert Nairaic, Britain’s Death Squad Adventurer
In his book, Capt. Fred Holroyd, interviewed in the film, states:
I have my own memories of Captain Robert Nairac and they are mixed. I liked him and saw him as a younger version of myself. He was keen and brave, if a little rash, but totally committed to the war against the terrorists. However there was another side to Robert that I was to learn about. The unit he was involved with, with the cover title ‘4 Field Survey Troop, Royal Engineers’, was involved with the murdering of suspected and known key members of the IRA.
Queries: If that is true, who authorised the murdering of suspected IRA members?
Was the SAS operating in NI long before the Government of the day were aware of it?
The film also features
The Jackal alias Robin Jackson
The Historical Enquiries Team found he was linked to the murders of three members of the Miami Showband in July 1975.
He received a tipoff from a senior police officer that helped him elude justice. Robin Jackson was advised to lie low after his fingerprints were found on a murder weapon
In 1984 he helped organise the attempted murder of the then Sunday World northern editor Jim Campbell, who had named Jackson as the leader of the UVF in Mid-Ulster, which was responsible for shootings and bombings against nationalists in the so-called “Murder Triangle” of North Armagh.
So here’s our film
Were the Dublin and Monaghan bombings organized by the SAS using Loyalists as a proxy?
Is Collusion An Illusion?
Why has no Dublin Government ever pressed for redress for its citizens?
