Northern Ireland militants planted Brexit day bomb to blow up ferry

Northern Irish militants tried to use a truck bomb to blow up a ferry sailing to Scotland on Brexit day, police said. The explosive device was found attached to a goods vehicle in the town of Lurgan. The bombers apparently picked the wrong truck, because the vehicle remained at a haulage company’s yard. The Police believes the Continuity IRA was responsible for the device.

It’s funny how desiring self determination gets you labeled a dissident...car bombs aside (that’s reprehensible, but not everyone that wants self governance in Ireland is making car bombs)

I was not aware that the IRA were considered 'republicans'. Not like US Republicans, I'm sure, but I thought the 'R' stood for Resistance.
