Tagged on to the end of another story, is reference to an alleged report from the taoiseach’s office that there was a discussion within the IRA’s leadership over whether they should go for a a ‘spectacular’ in Britain, or the bank robbery.

Certainly Martin McGuinness believes the process is moving onto dangerous ground.
