  • Description

    Bomb terror came to Dublin on Friday night (1 December). Bombs exploded in the city centre, killing two men and injuring nearly a hundred others, including several policemen.

    The bombings--similar to those which have become so familiar in Northern Ireland--follow the introduction of a Bill aimed at totally suppressing the Irish Republican Army (I.R.A.). The Bill has aroused opposition even among those who abhor the I.R.A., because of the possible abuse of its wide-ranging measures--such as imprisonment of anyone named as an I.R.A. member by a senior policeman.

    The Friday night explosions came as the Bill was being discussed in the Dail (the Republic of Ireland's Parliament). It was passed by 70 votes to 23.

    The Provisional I.R.A. denied responsibility for the Dublin explosions. Warnings that bombs had been planted were passed to Dublin police by authorities in Belfast, the Northern Ireland capital.
