1974 Dublin/Monaghan bombings an effort to start a civil war?

A new Irish TV documentary has claimed that the purpose of the Dublin/Monaghan bombings in 1974 was to start a civil war. The bombings were carried out by Loyalists acting under orders from British Army agents the documentary revealed.

The bombings of 17 May 1974 were a series of coordinated car bombings in Dublin and Monaghan. Three exploded in Dublin during rush hour and a fourth exploded in Monaghan almost 90 minutes later. They killed 33 civilians and a full-term unborn child, and injured almost 300.

The bombings were the deadliest attack of the conflict known as the Troubles, and the deadliest terrorist attack in the Republic’s history. Most of the victims were young women, although the ages of the dead ranged from five months to 80 years.

Following the documentary there have been calls for the Irish government to immediately request all collusion files be made public.

“Collusion”, a special RTE program aired on Monday, and examined the extent of collusion between security forces and loyalists paramilitaries. It’s available to watch online, worldwide, on RTE Player International.
