  • Description

    In Dublin, the Irish Republican Army (IRA) outlined on Wednesday (20 June) their plan for an all-Ireland federation which would include the northern counties now under British rule.

    The plan was put forward at a press conference given by the leaders of the Provisional IRA - the group that did most of the shooting up to the Monday night ceasefire in Ulster.

    Under their proposal, predominantly Protestant Northern Ireland would be enlarged and united under a federal body with the Catholic Irish Republic to the south.

    One of the IRA's top political brains, Mr David O'Connell, said the document put forward was drawn up after consultation with Protestant leaders in Ulster over the last eight months.

    He also said that all the points made in the proposal would be open to negotiation among the interested por??? concerned
