Sinn Fein and Irish Republican Army —
these are some of a zillion sites relating to
Sinn Fein and the IRA.
A quick web search finds many pages, including some
claiming that Sinn Fein has had absolutely
no connection to the Irish Republican Army, and that
both organizations are as pure as the driven snow.
To quote the U.S. State Department,
``Radical terrorist group formed in 1969 as
clandestine armed wing of Sinn Fein, a legal
political movement dedicated to removing
British forces from Northern Ireland and
Has a Marxist orientation.
Organized into small, tightly knit cells under
the leadership of the Army Council.''
