Colombia 3: IRA guys Create Headaches For Everybody
Props to my old buddy and fellow Champ Car addict, SOD, for the link. The 3 IRA guys who were accused in Colombia of working with the narco-guerillas, and who have been con victed of carrying false passaports, jumped bail and appeared in the Irish Republic. Due to the Irish Republic's role in Northern Ireland's on-going peace negotiations, this comes at a particularly bad time for the Irish Republic to be dealing with this situation. Their was initial suspicion that this appearance, was due to a secret deal with the U.K. which was promptly denied. The B.B.C. talks about the tough time ahead, facing the government the next couple of months.
