    Default Irish Government complicit in Intelligence gathering for Loyalist Paramilitaries ?

    According to the de Silva report. 85% of all Loyalist Intelligence was provided by the security services which including RUC special branch and the Force Research Unit ,Given that the Garda Siochana were Passing Sensitive security information to these same organisations ,does this not imply that our Government was partly responsible for the actions of these Death Squads? apart from there murders activities in the north there were also a number of high profile attacks on our side of the border .the most notorious being the Execution of Sinn Fein Cllr Eddie Fullerton in Donegal .For years both the mainstream media in Ireland and Irish Politicians have claimed that any talk of Collusion with Loyalist death squads was the work of anti British Cranks and Provo Sympathiser .What say ye now?

    Why did the Gardai raid Eddie Fullerton's house in Buncrana, shortly before his death and draw a sketched plan of the interior of his house, including who slept in each bedroom???

    Why did the Gardai, who were carrying out a surveillance operation outside the Widow Scallons, drive away minutes before the British death squad arrived?

    Is anyone surprised that the gardai and other Irish security services were infiltrated by foreign agents? That's what foreign agents do - pay traitors.

    It's not a matter of infiltration, it was policy for the 26 county security forces to cooperate with their counterparts in the north.

    It's easy to forget now, with all the revisionist historians about, that SF were being helped by Gaddafy and the Soviet Union, and lots of people down here didn't like the sound of that. They had started a "war" and I'd say poor Eddie knew the risks he was taking.

    It's been undisputed for several years now that there was Collusion as a result of the Stevens Inquiries.

    Considering that there were so many informers in the ranks of the IRA I'd suggest that the IRA was the single biggest and most important source of intelligence passed onto to murder squads
