IRA closed Dublin Guard station?

An extraordinary story, if it turns out to hold water. Young Irelander has a snippet from last night’s Evening Herald that alleges that “Gardai were forced to close down one of Dublin’s main garda stations after IRA threats”. Officers had arrested the main suspect for a particularly clinical murder in an inner city pub.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
