Hard realities of situation in Ireland must be faced
Statement from Ruairí Ó Brádaigh, President, Republican Sinn Féin
For more than 20 years Republican Sinn Féin has been warning that the lessons of Irish history have been that as long as the British government and British occupation troops remain in Ireland there will be Irish people to oppose their presence here.
It is only a matter of days since Hugh Order, the head of the RUC, announced that undercover British troops were being brought back into this country.
While everyone regretted loss of life, the hard realities of the situation in Ireland must be faced.
