Bobby Storey joined the Provisional IRA to try and bring about a united Irish Republic through the means of bomb and gun. He became a major player and was responsible for 100s of deaths. Today he died in a country under British rule where the red hand flies proud.

Most remarkable line on Today FM news bulletin about death of Bobby Storey. Newscaster notes his alleged links to Northern Bank robbery. Then immediately cites comments from Mary Lou McDonald who said he was a “good republican”. Nonchalant, almost.

Bobby Storey’s death might have some reprocussions for security. He was centrally involved in ongoing efforts to confront dissident factions of the IRA in Belfast. The mainstream republican movement will find it difficult to find his replacement for lots of reasons.
