Celebrate IRA woman connected to bombs? (UK)

Breaking News

The assembly commission is to meet again on Thursday to discuss a Sinn Féin plan to celebrate the life of IRA member Maireád Farrell at Stormont.

The cross-party body, which is charged with looking after the estate, has been asked to rule on the event, to mark International Women's Day.

A number of meetings on the issue have already been postponed this week.

Farrell was shot dead in Gibraltar in 1988 along with two other IRA members by the SAS.

Keys to a car found in her handbag led to the discovery in Spain of five packages of Semtex explosive.
