    Default Eight on IRA Membership Charges After Clondalkin Raid

    Eight Dublin men have appeared before a sitting of the Special Criminal Court charged with membership of the IRA.

    The men were all arrested on Friday afternoon after a search of a commercial premises in Clondalkin as part of an ongoing Garda investigation in to the activities of dissident republicans.

    It remains to be seen what the evidence is or which republican grouping was targetted. AFAIK all that's required to "prove" such charges is the word of a senior Garda officer - internment by another name.

    They would not be associated with SF, most likely FG or FF

    Yeah, they were probably just in buying Easter eggs. The police are always going around arresting lads in groups of 8 just for the craic.
