I just picked this snippet of a five year old article from Newsweek, from the Google ads on the side. It begins with a report from the Felons Club.

In the time that’s passed, despite three unquantified decommissioning events, there is still huge resistence to the state’s (whether Irish or British) monopoly of force within Sinn Fein and the IRA.
