Arrow Macnab


Quote:
Clan Macnab is a Highland Scottish clan..The name Macnab is derived from the Scottish Gaelic Mac An Aba, which means child of the abbot. According to tradition the progenitor of the clan was Abraruadh who was the Abbot of Glen Dochart and Strathearn.. Abraruadh was allegedly a younger son of Kenneth MacAlpin, the first king of Scots..Abraruadh was also descended from Fergus, king of Dál Riata and a nephew of Saint Fillan, who was the founder of the monastery in Glen Dochart in the seventh century...One of the earliest records of the Macnab family is on a charter of 1124.. Malcolm de Glendochart appears in the Ragman Rolls of 1296 and submitted to Edward I of England...

Ragman Rolls refers to the collection of instruments by which the nobility and gentry of Scotland subscribed allegiance to King Edward I of England, during the time between the Conference of Norham in May 1291 and the final award in favour of Balliol in November 1292; and again in 1296. Of the former of these records two copies were preserved in the Chapter House at Westminster Abbey (now in The National Archives (United Kingdom) at Kew), and it has been printed by Rymer (Foedera, ~i. 542). Another copy, preserved originally in the Tower of London, is now also in The National Archives..

Angus Macnab was brother-in-law of John III Comyn, Lord of Badenoch who was murdered by Robert the Bruce in 1306.. Macnab then joined forces with the Clan MacDougall in their campaign against the Bruce when Bruce was nearly captured at the Battle of Dalrigh.. When the Bruce's power consolidated after his victory at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314, the Macnab lands were forfeited and their charters were destroyed..The fortunes of the Clan Macnab were restored to some extent when Angus's grandson, Gilbert, received a charter from David II of Scotland in 1336.. Gilbert was succeeded by his son, Sir Alexander Macnab, who died in about 1407..Many battles were fought between the Clan Macnab and the Clan Neish. The last battle between them was fought at Glenboultachan where the Macnabs were victorious. The Neishes were killed almost to a man. However some Neishes survived and continued to live on what they called Neish Island. The Neishes continued to plunder the neighbourhood and
feuds continued...



Robert Macnab, the 14th chief of Clan Macnab married a sister of John Campbell, 1st Earl of Breadalbane and Holland. This connection to the Clan Campbell constrained him from supporting the Jacobites in the rising of 1715, although many of his clansmen did take part.. The fifteenth chief was a major in the Hanoverian government army and was captured at the Battle of Prestonpans in 1745. He was then held prisoner in Doune Castle..Doune Castle is a medieval stronghold near the village of Doune, in the Stirling district of central Scotland. The castle is sited on a wooded bend where the Ardoch Burn flows into the River Teith. It lies 8 miles (13 km) north-west of Stirling, where the Teith flows into the River Forth. Upstream, 8 miles (13 km) further north-west, the town of Callander lies at the edge of the Trossachs,
on the fringe of the Scottish Highlands...

Arrow Timor Omnis Abesto


Patriot Games (1992) - Miller escapes...
Quote:
While, clearly, he doesn't often do TV, he crops up in newspapers, offering an insider's view of military issues, and on the radio. A couple of weeks ago, there was a minor scandal when his appearance on Desert Island Discs was suddenly pulled, apparently because the BBC judged that a discussion with Sue Lawley about hostage-taking might be upsetting in the wake of the kidnapping of Margaret Hassan. The day we meet, he is off to TalkSport, Kelvin Mackenzie's mob, for a spot of technical training prior to standing in as presenter of the Friday night phone-in. He lectures for the army and security agencies; and he is happy to do interviews.

Given all the publicity, it does occur to me that perhaps anonymity - McNab is not his real name - has become obsolete. He has wondered about dropping it, but there are practical considerations: "The way it was portrayed - 'Oh, the Iraqis are after him' - it's a load of old crap. What it is, it's domestic terrorism."

As a 19-year-old infantryman in Northern Ireland, he shot dead a member of the IRA, an incident described in his second book, Immediate Action. Subsequently, while in the SAS, he served with 14 Intelligence Group, a clandestine outfit involved in identifying IRA active service units and material: on both counts, he is a potential target. Besides, these days he mixes with celebrities: "And actually the life isn't as good, it's shite because they can't go into supermarkets without people looking." In any case, he happily admits, Andy McNab is now a brand: "I've sold beer, watches."

His new book, Deep Black , is the se7enth to feature his hero Nick Stone, a disillusioned ex-SAS man who has ended up working on "deniable operations" for an ultra-secret, ultra-ruthless American government agency. In this one, Stone goes searching for a charismatic Muslim leader; the quest takes him to American-occupied Baghdad, where he encounters an exotic cast of spooks, crooks, fanatics and old comrades - now working "the circuit" as security consultants" - and then on to Sarajevo, where, as usual, Stone ends up even more disillusioned than at the start...

The plot strains credibility, and the terse, slangy prose is sometimes repetitive (cannabis is invariably "waccy baccy"), but McNab's action sequences, the way that heroics are inflected with terror and self-preservation, do have an emotional conviction that few action writers manage. His characters aren't heroes or supermen, but they are good at staying alive and intent on doing just that..

This is what sells the books: the implicit promise that, though they may be fiction, they are at some level, in some way, real. At the start of the book - what would be the pre-credit sequence in a movie - Nick Stone is in Bosnia in 1994, staking out a cement works where a visit is expected from the Bosnian Serb general Ratko Mladic..
Stone's job is to aim the laser that will guide a smart bomb to the target...

[QUOTE=diamond dogs;1060138503]I have always had my doubts over who was behind and responsible for the Brighton bombing and something doesn't sit right with me, I remember after the event a Crimewatch special programme that concentrated on a signiature of the 'so called' bomber at the time that was left in the guest book. It seemed to be right from the start of the investigation that the story was always going to be based on the the guest book signiature..and not long afterwards they got their man.. it was as if all other evidence was irrelevant and all other avenues of investigation were not neccessary..

I am absolutely certain that sniffer dogs would have detected the explosives.

I can't weigh up the 'bombers' body language ..could he be a fall guy... would they have really let him out after 14 years and survive after committing such an atrocity..this interview seems surreal ?

Just spotted this post on this very interesting thread. Lord Norman Tebbit
(who may not be anybody's cup of tea on here - love or loathe the man is irrelavent) came out with a very interesting statement of his own on Radio 4 in a recent interview that whenever he pushes for an enquiry on the Brighton bombing (which he relentlessly does) I think in his own words seeking the organ grinder not the delivery monkey, he is repeatedly denied this by his own (ruling) Conservative party. It's obviously an event that has been deemed by TPTB to be left well alone.

Lightbulb Angelo Fusco


Quote:
Angelo Fusco (born 2 September 1956) is a former volunteer in the Belfast Brigade of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) who escaped during his 1981 trial for killing a Special Air Service (SAS) officer in 1980..Fusco was born in west Belfast in 1956, to a family with an Italian background who owned a fish and chip shop.. He joined the Belfast Brigade of the IRA and was part of a four-man active service unit, along with Joe Doherty and Paul Magee, which operated in the late 1970s and early 1980s nicknamed the "M60 gang" due to their use of an M60 heavy machine gun..On 9 April 1980 the unit lured the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) into an ambush on Stewartstown Road, killing one constable and wounding 2 others...The trial of Fusco and the other members of the M60 gang began in early May 1981, with them facing charges including 3 counts of murder.. On 10 June Fusco and se7en other prisoners, including Joe Doherty and the other members of the IRA unit, took a prison officer hostage at gunpoint in Crumlin Road Jail.. After locking the officer in a cell, the 8 took other officers and visiting solicitors hostage, also locking them in cells after taking their clothing..2 of the 8 wore officer's uniforms while a 3rd wore clothing taken from a solicitor, and the group moved towards the first of 3 gates separating them from the outside world...

Fusco was arrested at a Garda checkpoint in Castleisland, County Kerry on 3 January 2000.. The following day he was being escorted back to Northern Ireland to be handed over to the RUC, when his handover was halted by a successful court appeal by Sinn Féin.. The arrest and abortive return of Fusco undermined the Northern Ireland peace process, with Unionist politicians including Ken Maginnis criticising the extradition being halted.. Republicans were critical of Fusco's arrest, with leading Sinn Féin member Martin Ferris stating "The Irish government should immediately move to rescind the warrant against Angelo Fusco. The action will cause great anger and resentment within the nationalist community", and graffiti in one republican area read "Extradite Bloody Sunday war criminals, not Fusco"..On 6 January Fusco was refused bail and remanded to prison in Castlerea, County Roscommon to await a legal review of his extradition, prompting scuffles outside the court between police and Sinn Féin supporters..

Fusco was freed on bail on 21 March pending the outcome of his legal challenge, and in November 2000 the Irish government informed the High Court that it was no longer seeking to return him to Northern Ireland. This followed a statement from Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Peter Mandelson saying that "it is clearly anomalous to pursue the extradition of people who appear to qualify for early release under the Good Friday Agreement scheme, and who would, on making a successful application to the Sentence Review Commissioners, have little if any of their original prison sentence to serve".. After the court hearing Fusco stated "I'm relieved it's over", and that he would continue to live in Tralee with his family and work for Sinn Féin.. In December 2000 Fusco and three other IRA members, including two other members of the M60 gang, were granted a Royal Prerogative of Mercy which allowed them to return to Northern Ireland without fear of prosecution..



Person of Interest..Lionel P. Fusco.. is a police detective who was previously with NYPD 51st Precinct Vice Squad, which they became corrupted, even Fusco himself, but he did it for personal loyalty rather than greed. John Reese gave him a chance for redemption. At first John had to blackmail him with the death of a murdered fellow officer, but later he became loyal to Reese and Finch. They arranged for him to be transferred to the 8th Precinct Homicide Task Force where he worked with Carter. He at first is unaware of Carter's work with them, but later he learns about it and both of them help Finch and Reese. He continues to serve as their contact after Carter is demoted to beat cop. Like Carter, he is unaware of the Machine's existence. He has an ex-wife and a young son...

Arrow Ryan's Daughter


Quote:
The Irish Republican Brotherhood (IRB; Irish: Bráithreachas Phoblacht na hÉireann, BPÉ) was a secret oath-bound fraternal organisation dedicated to the establishment of an "independent democratic republic" in Ireland between 1858 and 1924.. Its counterpart in the United States of America was organised by John O'Mahony and became known as the Fenian Brotherhood (later Clan na Gael).. The members of both wings of the movement are often referred to as "Fenians". The IRB played an important role in the history of Ireland, as the chief advocate of republicanism during the campaign for Ireland's independence from the United Kingdom, successor to movements such as the United Irishmen of the 1790s and the Young Irelanders of the 1840s..


Ryan's Daughter - PTSD Scene...

On 23 December Stephens dispatched Joseph Denieffe to America with his reply which was disguised as a business letter, and dated and addressed from Paris. In his reply Stephens outlined his conditions and his requirements from the organisation in America.. Stephens demanded uncontrolled power and £100 a month for the first three months.. Denieffe returned on 17 March 1858 with the acceptance of Stephens terms and £80. Denieffe also reported that there was no actual organised body of sympathisers in New York but merely a loose knot of associates. This disturbed Stephens but he went ahead regardless and that evening, St. Patrick's Day, the Irish Republican Brotherhood commenced..The original oath, with its clauses of secrecy was drawn up by Luby under Stephens' direction in Stephens' room in Donnelly's which was situated behind Lombard Street. Luby then swore Stephens in and he did likewise..The IRB was organised into circles, a "circle" was analogous to a regiment, that the "centre" or A, who might be considered equivalent to a colonel, who chose nine B's, or captains, who in their turn chose nine C's, or sergeants, who in their turn chose nine D's, who constituted the rank and file. In theory an A should only be known to the B's; a B, to his C's: and a C, to his D's; but this rule was often violated...

The IRB was re-organised at a convention in Manchester in July 1867.. An 11-man Supreme Council was elected to Govern the movement.. They would eventually be representatives from the seven districts in which the organisation was organised: the Irish provinces of Ulster, Munster, Leinster and Connacht, as well as Scotland, North England, and South England. The remaining four members were co-opted. The Supreme Council elected three of its members to the executive, which consisted of a president, secretary, and a treasurer.. The Council met twice a year, usually in the spring and the summer. In Manchester August 1867 Thomas Kelly was declared Chief Organiser of the Irish Republic (COIR), in succession to Stephens. The arrest and subsequent rescue of Kelly with Timothy Deasy in September 1867 resulted in the execution of the Manchester Martyrs. Kelly escaped to USA and remained associated with the IRB..The plot of Doctor Zhivago is long and intricate..That summer, Yuri (who is 11 years old) and Nikolai Nikolaevich travel to Duplyanka, the estate of Lavrenty Mikhailovich Kologrivov, a wealthy silk merchant.. They are there not to visit Kologrivov, who is abroad with his wife, but to visit a mutual friend, Ivan Ivanovich Voskoboinikov, an
intellectual who lives in the steward's cottage...

Lightbulb Fairytale of New York


Diana, Princess of Wales wearing an elegant gown at the Cannes Film Festival in 1987...

Quote:
MacGown...This interesting surname is a variant of MacGowan, which is of Scottish and Irish origin is an Anglicized form of the Gaelic Mac Gobhann (Scotland) and Mac Gabhann (Ireland), patronymics from occupational bynames meaning "Smith". It may also be an Anglicized form of the Gaelic Mac Owein (Scotland), a patronymic from the given name Owen or Ewan, itself deriving from the Greek Eugenios meaning "well-born", "noble". The surname dates back to the early 16th Century..Variations in the idiom of the spelling include McGowing, McGown, MacGoun, Mac Gow, Gowan and Gowans. Among the sample recordings in London are the marriages of John Gowans and Jane Dunbar on September 4th 1770 at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Westminster, and of George Gowans and Harriot Jane le Tellior on March 13th 1788 at St. Paul's, Covent Garden. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Gilbert Makgowin, which was dated 1526, a follower of the Earl of Cassilis, during the reign of King Henry V111, known as "Good King Hal", 1509 - 1547. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling...



Mac Gowan, sometimes, McGowan or, simply, Gowan, is a surname of ancient Gael royals. The MacGowan were one of a group of ancient Dál Fiatach dynasties that ruled Gaelic Ireland's Ulaidh nation or Uluti tribe. The MacGowan produced several of the over-kings of the Ulaidh and their last patrimony, which was Ulidia. Circa late 12th century A.D., English armies expelled the MacGowan from the Ulidia (kingdom) area or what is today the southeastern part of Northern Ireland or Ulster (in modern media usage) and into the area of what is today the modern Republic of Ireland's Donegal. The area of modern Donegal was then comprised within the last standing Gaelic sovereignty and stronghold of Tirconnell kingdom, which was ruled by the O'Donnell dynasty royals..As noted further in source by John O'Hart, though not an occupational surname, MacGowan evolves as an Anglicization of the original Gaelic language personal description or nickname "gobha", meaning in English language "blacksmith". For this reason, the surnames of some septs of the MacGowan are alternately anglicised to Smythe (surname) or Smith..

The McGowan family is a noble family holding titles in the Peerage of the United Kingdom and the Peerage and Baronetage of Ireland ..The McGowan family has direct links to the Pepys family (the Earls of Cottenham), and the Nevill family, holders of the titles of Marquess of Abergavenny, Viscount Neville and Earl of Abergavenny...A gown, from medieval Latin gunna, is a usually loose outer garment from knee- to full-length worn by men and women in Europe from the early Middle Ages to the 17th century, and continuing today in certain professions; later, gown was applied to any full-length woman's garment consisting of a bodice and attached skirt. A long, loosely-fitted gown called a Banyan was worn by men in the 18th century as an informal coat..Trooper Malcolm (Mal) Graham MacGown, BDSc former Australian 1st Commando Regiment.. Captured by the eminem, later released.. Referred to as
'Stan' in the books..

The Gulf War took place between 2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991, code named Operation Desert Storm by the United States Military but called Operation Granby by the British..The Queen's Royal Irish Hussars, abbreviated as QRIH, was a cavalry regiment of the British Army formed from the amalgamation of the 4th Queen's Own Hussars and the 8th King's Royal Irish Hussars in Hohne, West Germany in 1958...



Prior to the war the regiment had just arrived in Fallingbostel as part of the 7th Armoured Brigade, (under the command of Brigadier Patrick Cordingley) 1st (UK) Armoured Division and was engaged in training on the Soltau-Lüneburg Training Area known to all as Soltau.. The Colonel, Lt Col Arthur Denaro was recovering from a polo accident 4 weeks earlier when he had broken his skull in 4 places requiring a metal plate to be inset but was still taking part in the exercise.. The other regiments in the brigade had recently undergone intensive training at BATUS in Canada which the hussars missed out on having just arrived with the British Army of the Rhine..The regiment trooped to the port city of Al Jubayl (scene of a later suspected chemical attack) and awaited the arrival of their 57 Challenger 1 tanks and other equipment. After the arrival of everything, grease had to be cleaned off, sand filters etc. fitted before the regiment made its way by tank transporter into the desert.. After which training for the forthcoming combat began.. At one point depleted uranium ammunition was issued at the rate of 5 rounds per tank.. During one training day 14 of the 57 tanks broke down causing serious concerns for Col Denaro.. Captain Tim Purbrick commanding 4th Troop described firing fin at an Iraqi T55 tank, "Our second round entered its glacis plate and exited through the gearbox at the rear, igniting its ammunition and destroying the tank at a range of three thousand six hundred metres." This showed the phenomenal range, accuracy and penetrating power of the L11A5
manufactured by Vickers plc...

Following the blue on blue incident Brigadier Cordingly ordered all vehicles to fly flags, banners or anything they could lay their hands on to show they were friendly. He felt the campaign was coming to a close and that vehicles from all nationalities were roaming everywhere and that this would lead to more friendly fire incidents.. The Irish Hussars didn't disappoint.. Union flags and Ulster Banners quickly appeared. Col Denaro, a Roman Catholic from Donegal led the advance into Kuwait from that point onwards with an Ulster flag supplied by his Northern Ireland Protestant crew fluttering from one of his tank's antennae...The regiment was then tasked on G+4 to take possession of the Basra to Kuwait City highway to prevent retreating Iraqi forces from escaping. This was done by 0800hrs. The ceasefire was then announced so the regiment went firm and started putting up bivouacs and tents..As the regiment left the area heading back to Al Jubayl for "de-bombing" the RSM was stopped by some civilians who said, "Thank you for giving us back our country", which seemed to him to be a fitting end to the deployment...The regiment lost no casualties, no tanks were disabled or knocked out by enemy fire, and it took part in the destruction of over three hundred Iraqi tanks in a 4 day period...Colonel Denaro's Challenger 1 tank named "Churchill" is now preserved at The Tank Museum, Bovington with the list of its crew, Corporal John Nutt, Corporal Gerry McKenna, and Trooper les Hawkes..Donegal or Donegal Town ( Irish: Dún na nGall, meaning "fort of the foreigners," is a town in County Donegal, Ireland. The name was historically written in English as Dunnagall or Dunagall..St. Patrick was captured by raiders from the clans governed by Niall of the Nine Hostages, and this region is that to which Patrick returned, being familiar with the people, language, customs and lands..Donegal Town itself is famous for being the former centre of government of the O'Donnell Clan, the great Gaelic royal family who ruled Tír Chonaill in west Ulster for centuries and who played a pivotal rôle in Irish history..The Bus Éireann service number 64 Derry/Galway route: this makes several other stops including Letterkenny and Sligo (which allows for rail connections by Iarnród Éireann, from MacDiarmada Station in Sligo to Dublin Connolly..Donegal Town was host to the final stage of the World Rally Championship on 1 February 2009 and was viewed by 68 million people worldwide..Donegal Carpets have been made in Killybegs for over one hundred years and have been found in Áras an Uachtaráin, the University of Notre Dame and the White House..Donegal town is home to many amateur sports clubs.

Arrow Kilcullen Stud


Quote:
Lieutenant Colonel Abraham Boulger VC (4 September 1835 – 23 January 1900) was born in Kilcullen, County Kildare, and was an Irish recipient of the Victoria Cross, the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that can be awarded to British and Commonwealth forces..He served as a Quartermaster during the 1882 Anglo-Egyptian War and later achieved the rank of Lieutenant Colonel...

Quote:
Kilcullen is about 6 km (3.7 mi) from the Curragh, the center of Ireland's horse racing industry and is home to the Aga Khan's horse breeding operation, the Gilltown Stud, and to stud and cattle breeding operations belonging to Tony O'Reilly and his wife. Horse-riding is available, and horses can be stabled locally..The Aga Khan owns Gill-town Stud near Kilcullen, Ireland, and the Haras de Bonneval breeding farm at Le Mesnil-Mauger in France..Alamshar (foaled 18 April 2000) is a retired Irish Thoroughbred racehorse and active sire. He won 5 of his nine races in a career which lasted from September 2002 to September 2003.

Kilcullen is situated near the main Dublin to Waterford (N9) road, between Naas and Kilkenny, and is centred on the crossroads of the R413 and R448 regional roads (the R448 was part of the main road from Dublin to Carlow, Kilkenny and Waterford until the M9 motorway was opened in 1995, bypassing the town)..Kilcullen straddles the River Liffey and is about 50 km (31 mi) from Dublin, under 5 km (3 mi) from Newbridge, and also close to Kildare Town and Naas..Kilcullen was influenced for much of its history by the Eustace family, one of whose seats was at Castlemartin..On Thursday, 2 July 1903 the Gordon Bennett Cup ran through Kilcullen. It was the first international motor race to be held anywhere in what was then known as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, an honorific to Selwyn Edge who had won the 1902 event in Paris driving a Napier..As a compliment to Ireland the British team chose to race in Shamrock green which thus became known as British racing green, although the winning Napier of 1902 had been painted olive green..Kilcullen is the main element in the Parish of Kilcullen and Gormanstown in the Roman Catholic Church, with two churches managed by the parish of which the parish church, dedicated to the Sacred Heart and St. Brigid, from 1872, lies at the western end of the town proper, while the other, St. Joseph's, is at Yellow Bog. There is also a church on private land, at Castlemartin Estate, St. Mary's Church..There is an active local Scout group, and a well-established credit union, with a large office near the town bridge, as well as the Kilcullen Flower and Garden Club..

Joe Cahill (Irish: Seosamh Ó Cathail; 19 May 1920 – 23 July 2004) was a prominent Irish republican paramilitary and former chief of staff of the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA)..On 19 May 1920, Cahill was born above a small printing shop at 60 Divis Street in West Belfast, Ireland, where his parents had been neighbours of the Scottish-born Irish revolutionary James Connolly..Cahill was the first child in a family of twelve siblings born to Joseph and Josephine Cahill.. Cahill was educated at St. Mary's Christian Brothers' Primary School at Barrack Street. Cahill's father was a printer by trade and an Irish republican who was a former member of the Irish National Volunteers and would produce republican-related material at his print shop.. At the age of 14 Cahill left school to assist in the print shop after his father had become ill..Soon after this, Cahill joined the Catholic Young Men's Society, which campaigned on social issues with a focus on eradicating working-class areas of Belfast of moneylenders who often charged extortionately-high levels of interest rate. At the age of se7enteen, Cahill then joined Na Fianna Éireann, a republican-orientated scouting movement...



The following year in 1938, at the age of 18, Cahill joined the local Clonard-based 'C' Company of the Belfast Brigade of the Irish Republican Army. In the 1940s, he was sentenced to death for killing a police officer during the IRA's Northern Campaign. The sentence was commuted to life imprisonment, as a result of pressure on the British government by the Irish government. The Vatican also called on the Northern Ireland government to grant clemency.. Of the 6 men sentenced to death for the murder of Constable Patrick Murphy of Clowney Street, the Falls Road, Belfast, only one was executed. He was Tom Williams, the leader of the IRA unit that killed Murphy..In 1969, Cahill was a key figure in founding the Provisional Irish Republican Army. In the Northern Ireland riots of August 1969, Cahill, along with Billy McKee, tried to defend the Catholic Clonard area from attack, but was unable to prevent Bombay Street being burned by Ulster Protestant rioters. When he subsequently tried to organise the defence of the Ballymurphy area, he was initially chased away by its Catholic residents, who were unimpressed with the IRA's response to the events of August 1969..Angry at the failure of the IRA, led in Belfast by Billy McMillen, to defend Catholic areas during this communal rioting, Cahill and McKee stated in September 1969 that they would no longer be taking orders from the IRA leadership in Dublin, or from McMillen. In December 1969, they declared their allegiance to the Provisional IRA, who split off from the leadership. This action took 9 out of the 13 units of the IRA in Belfast into the Provisional IRA. The remnants of the pre-split IRA became known as the Official IRA. Cahill was a member of the first Provisional IRA Army Council...



In April 1971, after the arrest and imprisonment of Billy McKee, Cahill became the commander of the Provisional IRA Belfast Brigade. He held this post until the introduction of internment in August of that year. It was during this period that the Provisional IRA campaign got off the ground in the city. Cahill authorised the beginning of the IRA's bombing campaign as well as attacks on British troops and the RUC..In March 1972, Cahill was part of an IRA delegation that held direct talks with the British Labour Party leader Harold Wilson.. However, although the IRA called a 3-day ceasefire for the talks, no permanent end to violence was agreed upon..On his return to Ireland, Cahill was arrested in Dublin by Gardaí and charged with IRA membership. However he went on hunger strike for 23 days and was subsequently released due to lack of evidence. In November 1972, Cahill became the IRA's chief of staff, he held this position until his arrest the following year..Cahill was then put in charge of importing arms for the IRA.. He liaised with the NORAID group in America and with the Libyan dictatorship of Muammar al-Gaddafi to this end..March 1973 he was arrested by the Irish Navy in Waterford, aboard the Claudia, a ship from Libya loaded with 5 tons of weapons...

In his later years as honorary life vice-president of Sinn Féin he was a strong supporter of Gerry Adams and the Good Friday Agreement. In 1994, a controversial but central aspect of the IRA's ceasefire was the granting of a limited visa by then United States President Bill Clinton to Cahill, in the face of strident opposition by John Major's government.. This was to facilitate a trip to the United States to win support for the new Sinn Féin strategy from Irish American IRA supporters..In 1998 he stood in North Antrim in the elections to the Northern Ireland Assembly but was unsuccessful, finishing in eleventh place in a poll topped by Ian Paisley..Cahill died at the age of 84 in Belfast as a result of being exposed to asbestos while working at the Harland & Wolff shipyards in his twenties. He and several other former shipyard workers later sued the company for their exposure to the dangerous substances but only won minimal compensation. There is a republican flute band from Glasgow named after Cahill..


Joe Cahill was more Forrest Gump than IRA terrorist mastermind...INSTEAD of being prosecuted, military spooks used the images to turn Cahill - a close ally of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams - into one of the British Army's most valuable informants..BRITISH spies allegedly used pictures of a senior figure in the IRA abusing a girl of 14 to blackmail him into working for them..Chief of Staff Joe Cahill, who helped found the Provisional IRA, was photographed by a covert unit in the 1970s..A source revealed that Cahill, who died in 2004, was being followed by a covert unit as he drove around Belfast when the pictures were taken..The source said: “The pictures clearly identified both Cahill and his victim. Her father would have killed him if he had found out.. He was never prosecuted and instead the pictures were used to turn him. He was a prize asset”..Last week, Cahill’s grandniece Mairia revealed the IRA covered up the abuse she suffered as a 16-year-old at the hands of another IRA figure..Mairia was not Cahill’s alleged victim in the 70s..The MOD did not comment on the story last night..But a military source said: “There were some very questionable techniques deployed in the 1970s but they were stopped very soon afterwards.”..Mr. Wallace, call the President.. Tell him if he doesn't sign the bill lowering the cable rates, we will release the video of him with the cheerleader in the Chicago motel room..And after he signs the bill, release the tape anyway...

Quote:
The regiment was formed in 1966 by the amalgamation of the three separate regiments of the Green Jackets Brigade: the 1st Green Jackets (43rd and 52nd), the 2nd Green Jackets the King's Royal Rifle Corps and the 3rd Green Jackets the Rifle Brigade..

There were also two Territorial Army battalions made up as follows...

4th(V) Bn Royal Green Jackets - formed from the remnants of the Rangers (KRRC), London Rifle Brigade, Tower Hamlets Rifles, Queens Westminsters, Queen Victoria's Rifles, Queen's Royal Rifles and Civil Service Rifles-5th(V) Bn Royal Green Jackets - formed from the 4th Bn the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry (TA) and the Buckinghamshire Battalion of the Ox & Bucks Light Infantry..

During the 1980s, the battalions were deployed to various parts of Northern Ireland (Operation Banner).. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd battalions were also based in West Germany, Osnabrück (1RGJ), Minden (2RGJ) and Celle (3RGJ).The regiment's greatest loss of life came on 20 July 1982 when seven RGJ bandsmen were killed by a Provisional Irish Republican Army bomb which exploded during a public concert featuring the music from Oliver! to 120 people at the bandstand in Regents Park...



In 1992 1st RGJ was disbanded and 2/RGJ and 3/RGJ renumbered 1/RGJ and 2/RGJ respectively..After the 1992 reorganisation, the unit was mostly based overseas in Dhekelia, Cyprus and Paderborn, Germany as well as in Northern Ireland and saw action in Bosnia and Kosovo during the Yugoslav Wars.. Both battalions returned to the UK by 2002 and the 1st battalion served on Operation Telic in Iraq..Their motto was Celer et Audax (Latin: "Swift and Bold").. As they were used as shock troops and marksmen, they had to get to the front line of battle as fast as was possible; as a result the RGJ marched at 140 paces per minute (at a 30" pace) whereas other regiments march at just 120..

The regiment was classed as a 'rifle' regiment, having its lineage in the regiments of foot that were equipped with the first Baker rifles.. Traditionally, rifle regiments wore rifle green tunics, an early form of camouflage, instead of the red jackets worn by line infantry, hence the regimental name..The cap badge was a Maltese Cross, which was drawn from the badges of the King's Royal Rifle Corps and The Rifle Brigade, with a combination of some of their battle honours on its arms...

1989 September 7 – Heidi Hazell, the 26-year-old wife of a British soldier, is shot dead in Dortmund, West Germany..She was waiting near a British Army married quarter in Unna.. They claimed she had been shot "in the belief that she was a member of the British Army garrison at Dortmund". Her husband was a British Army staff sergeant. Hans Engelhard, West Germany's Justice Minister called it "the insane act of a blind fanatic"..Massen and Königsborn are industrial and mining areas; the other districts have a more rural character..The history of Unna is a long series of wars, plagues, and fires...Unna is situated on an ancient salt-trading route, the Hellweg road– Representatives of the government of Ethiopia and Eritrean separatists meet in Atlanta, with former U.S. President Jimmy Carter attempting to broker a peace settlement...

On 23 September 1973, a British soldier died of wounds 6 days after being injured while attempting to defuse an IRA bomb outside an office block in Birmingham.. Hellweg, connoting the wide "bright" clearway (heller Weg) through the forest, derives from Low German helwech with this same significance. Another etymology for Hellweg is from Salzweg, the "Salt road", on the ancient roots hál-s (Greek), and hal (Celtic), "salt". Yet another meaning connotes a "Way of the Dead"; e.g., in Grimm's Worterbuch, Helvegr is the route to Hel, the Underworld..– The Oakland Raiders defeat the Miami Dolphins 12-7, ending the Dolphins' unbeaten streak at 18 - Largest known prime is discovered- Kathy Whitworth wins LPGA Portland Ladies Golf Open- Former Argentine President Juan Peron returns to phower..

Ground-breaking 5-star Properties...
Quote:
Italian police have broken up a huge money-laundering scheme run by the IRA and the Mafia which has allegedly duped hundreds of holiday home investors across Europe..A British man, said to be involved with the republican terrorist organisation, is being sought by detectives investigating the £390m fraud which was based around a development on the beautiful coast of Calabria in Southern Italy...



Fitzsimmons sent two men into the hotel armed with a Thompson sub-machinegun and a revolver who threatened the staff before planting a bomb in the building, which later blew up causing £183,000 damage..He was also jailed for blowing up the Collin Glenn bacon factory where he had worked and stealing the £7,000 pay roll in November 1971..One security source told the Daily Telegraph that Fitzsimons was known to them but said they were not aware that he had re-engaged with dissident republicans.. Fitzsimons, known as “Harry”, now runs a company called VFI Overseas Property with his Italian business partner Antonio Velardo..The company won the European Europe Residential Property architecture award for its 5-star Calypso Lagoon development at Le Castella in Calabria..

One of the firms named by Italian investigators yesterday was Giambrone & Law, based in London and Palermo, Sicily, which last month lost a £1m battle with 13 property buyers from Northern Ireland over Italian holiday homes that were never built..The investors paid out 50 per cent deposits for apartments in Calabria in southern Italy nearly six years ago but the proposed El Caribe development never took place..The money-laundering scam also involved Spanish businessman, in a 3-way collaboration between Spain, Italy and the UK...

Greencastle (An Caisleán Nua), is a commercial fishing port located in the north of the scenic Inishowen Peninsula on the north coast of County Donegal, Ireland on Lough Foyle.. It is located a few miles from Moville and is about 20 miles from Derry..The pier also contains a newly built pilot office to replace the decommissioned pilot office at Carrickarory Pier..Allegations that visiting yachts were turned away from the harbour have now been shown to be completely unfounded.. A private company was seeking to establish a private Marina in the public harbour, forcing local fishermen out..A rumour was publicised that visiting yachts were turned away into a storm; Gardaí investigations found these accusations to have no foundation, as confirmed by the harbour master..The local pub, Eddie's Crossroad, won UK Community Pub of the Year award.. Richard Thorp, Alan Turner from ITV's Emmerdale Farm, came to the pub to award them the prize...



Some 30 years after its incorporation, Francis I visited Marseille, drawn by his curiosity to see a rhinoceros that King Manuel I of Portugal was sending to Pope Leo X, but which had been shipwrecked on the Île d'If...

Stiff Little Fingers - Suspect Device...

Quote:
Bridget Rose Dugdale (born c. 41), better known as Rose Dugdale, is a former debutante who rebelled against her wealthy upbringing, becoming a volunteer in the militant Irish republican organisation, the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA).. As an IRA member, she took part in the theft of paintings worth IR£8 million and a bomb attack on a Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) station using a hijacked helicopter..Dugdale was born into a wealthy English family, her millionaire father was an underwriter at Lloyd's of London who owned a 600-acre (2.4 km2) estate near Axminster in Devon.. The family also owned a house in London near Chelsea Hospital, and Dugdale was educated at the nearby Miss Ironside's School for Girls in Kensington, west London..After completing her early education Dugdale was sent abroad to attend finishing school, then in 58 she was presented as a debutante before Queen Elizabeth II at the start of the social season.. Her debutante ball was held in 59..While studying there she began what newspapers would later describe as a "lunge to the left", when she and a fellow student gatecrashed Oxford Union wearing wigs and men's clothing in protest at the Union's refusal to admit women.. After completing her studies at Oxford she travelled to the United States attending Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, where she obtained a master's degree in philosophy, submitting a thesis on Ludwig Wittgenstein..She also studied at the University of London, obtaining a Ph.D. in economics..



By the early 70s Dugdale had become politically radicalised due to the 68 student protests, and she had also been inspired after visiting Cuba..By 72 she had devoted herself to helping the poor, after resigning from her job as an economist for the government,selling her house in Chelsea, and moving into a flat in Tottenham with her lover, Walter..In June 73 the couple were arrested after a burglary at the Dugdale family home in Devon..she received a two-year suspended sentence as the judge considering the risk of her committing any further criminal acts to be "extremely remote"..In the months following the trial, Dugdale travelled to Ireland and joined an IRA active service unit operating along the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland..A warrant was also issued for her arrest by Manchester Magistrates Court on 23 February 74 on charges of conspiring to smuggle arms..Dugdale and three other IRA members forced their way into the house, and pistol-whipped Sir Alfred and his wife before tying and gagging the couple..The Vermeer taken was Lady Writing a Letter with her Maid, the only Vermeer in private ownership except for one at Buckingham Palace..Dugdale was arrested under Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, and the next day she was charged in relation to the helicopter attack and the art theft As at her previous trial in 73, Dugdale once again used the courtroom as a political platform, shouting "The British have an army of occupation in a small part of Ireland—but not for long!" during her arraignment in Dublin..On 25 June 74 she was sentenced to nine years imprisonment after pleading "proudly and incorruptibly guilty", and she gave a clenched fist salute to supporters in the public gallery..Dugdale was pregnant with Eddie Gallagher's child when she was imprisoned, and on 12 December 1974 she gave birth to a son, Ruairí, in Limerick Prison..On 3 October 1975 Gallagher and fellow IRA member Marion Coyle kidnapped industrialist Tiede Herrema near his home in Castletroy, a suburb of Limerick..The siege ended on 7 November when Herrema was released, and Coyle and Gallagher were arrested...After her release from prison Dugdale was active in the campaign in support of protesting Irish republican prisoners during the 1981 Irish hunger strike.. She is a veteran activist in the IRA's political wing Sinn Féin..In 2007 she spoke out in support of the Shell to Sea campaign against the proposed construction of a high-pressure raw gas pipeline through Rossport by Shell, saying the Shell contract was invalid and needed "to be renegotiated on behalf of the people of Ireland".. She is also a director at Dublin Community Television...

Lightbulb Abie's Irish Rose



Quote:
Abie's Irish Rose is a popular comedy by Anne Nichols familiar from stage productions, films and radio programs.. The basic premise involves an Irish Catholic girl and a young Jewish man who marry despite the objections of their families..Although initially receiving poor reviews, the Broadway play was a commercial hit, running for 2,327 performances between May 23, 1922 and October 1, 1927..

Meanwhile the girl's father, also a widower, who lives in California, and is as intense in his own religious antagonism as the Jew, has been called to New York, supposing that his daughter is to marry an Irishman and a Catholic.. Accompanied by a priest, he arrives at the house at the moment when the marriage is being celebrated, but too late to prevent it, and the two fathers, each infuriated by the proposed union of his child to a heretic, fall into unseemly and grotesque antics.. The priest and the rabbi become friendly, exchange trite sentiments about religion, and agree that the match is good..

Arrow Battle of the Bogside


Quote:
The rioting erupted as Irish nationalists threw stones and nails at the Apprentice Boys parade which was passing along the city walls, past an interface with the nationalist Bogside.. Fierce rioting broke out between unionists and the police on one side and nationalists on the other.. Rioting between police and Bogside residents continued for 3 days.. The police were unable to enter the area and eventually the British Army was deployed to restore order.. The riot, which sparked widespread violence elsewhere in Northern Ireland, is commonly seen as one of the first major confrontations in the conflict known as the Troubles...



On the afternoon of the 14th, the Prime Minister of Northern Ireland, James Chichester-Clark, took the unprecedented step of requesting the British Prime Minister Harold Wilson for troops to be sent to Derry. Soon afterwards a company of the 1st Battalion, Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire (who had been on standby at HMS Sea Eagle) relieved the police, with orders to separate the police and the Bogsiders, but not to attempt to breach the barricades and enter the Bogside itself.. This marked the first direct intervention of the London government in Ireland since partition. The British troops were at first welcomed by the Bogside residents as a neutral force compared to the police and especially the B-Specials..

Over 1000 people had been injured in the rioting in Derry, but no one was killed.. A total of 691 police men were deployed in Derry during the riot, of whom only 255 were still in action at 12.30 on the 15th. Manpower then fluctuated for the rest of the afternoon: the numbers recorded are 318, 304, 374, 333, 285 and finally 327 at 5.30 pm. While some of the fluctuation in numbers can be put down to exhaustion rather than injury, these figures indicate that the police suffered at least 350 serious injuries. How many Bogsiders were injured is unclear, as many injuries were never reported..That same night (the 14th) a loyalist mob burned all of the Catholic homes on Bombay Street.. Over 1,500 Catholics were expelled from their homes in Belfast...

Marion Coyle was born in July 54 in Derry, Northern Ireland, and lived in the Duncreggan Road, a rather middle-class and fashionable area of Derry.. Coyle was a student in typing and advanced English at the time of the civil rights demonstrations and civil disorder which culminated in the Battle of the Bogside.. In his work, Hostage:Notorious Irish Kidnappings, Paul Howard notes that Coyle was a very quiet teenager "showing none of the qualities that would make her one of the IRA's most fearless and respected Volunteers.. On the night of the 26th June 70 her uncle Joe Coyle, who was a member of the IRA's Derry leadership, along with Thomas Carlin, Tommy McCool and his 2 young daughters died when a bomb they were preparing in the kitchen of Tommy McCool's house on the Creggan estate exploded prematurely..

On 3 October 1975 Coyle and another IRA member, Eddie Gallagher, kidnapped industrialist Tiede Herrema near his home in Castletroy, a suburb of Limerick.. They were traced to a house in Monasterevin, County Kildare, and a 2-week siege began.. Coyle and Gallagher demanded the release of 3 republican prisoners, including Rose Dugdale, in return for the release of Herrema, but the authorities refused to grant any concessions.. The siege ended on 7 November when Herrema was released, and Coyle and Gallagher were arrested..The kidnapping was the longest in Irish history..Eamonn McCann (23 October 2005)..
