IRA should admit responsibility for Claudy?

There are strange things happening at the moment regarding past regarding unsolved/unclaimed atrocities. The IRA, who effectively maintained a ‘legitimate targets only’ reputation amongst most nationalists for the duration of the troubles, last week admitted they had not only murdered a fourteen year old Derry schoolgirl but that they’d also killed a British soldier in supposed revenge back in 1973. Now one of the relatives of the Claudy bomb has asked that they also admit to that incident from just the year before.
