The New IRA has admitted responsibility for the murder of journalist Lyra McKee, according to the Irish News.

In a statement given to the paper the group offered “full and sincere apologies” to her family and friends […]

The statement from the New IRA comes after the hard-left republican political party Saoradh – which has the support of the New IRA – had previously sought to justify the use of violence on Thursday.

We can do without these headbangers stinking up the place. In looking for the murderer and whoever helped him, I admit that I could be tempted to look the other way while gonads are attached to a generator. But the PSNI has to account for “community feelings”. More than the immediate case, we can really do the New IRA/Saoradh bums being dissuaded from carrying on. The security services will want to tiptoe around it all, but that was no good for Lyra McKee. They have to be stopped.

  1. They are following the example of those who before them murdered in the name of Irish freedom. If you fry these punks, there will be others in the future. A root and branch solution is the only solution.

  2. A root and branch solution is the only solution.

    So let’s hear this ‘solution’ then.

  3. hunt them, cage them, or kill them.

    that is the only solution.

  4. An over zealous policing and security response is what the New IRA want. Ultimately the response outside of policing is what is having the biggest effect. The communal response to this murder. A policing and security response turns it from a ‘everyone vs them’ situation to a ‘them vs us’ situation.
