Britain hasn't been the target for terror by Irish republican factions for a while, 'Jihadist' groups have taken their place, most notably 7/7.
however, what is the likeliness of an attack on the British mainland, and how would we cope, especially with the current threats already in place, Glasgow being the most recent ?
- They are called Dissident Republicans not "Irish Militant Splinter Groups". The main organisation is now the Real Irish Republican Army (RIRA). They have no link to political Republicans.
Clarification for OP...Irish Republican does not mean terrorists and does not neccesarily mean Irish Catholic. Also being a Celtic support does not make you an expert in Irish history
