McEntee report to underline collusion

As An Phoblacht went to press this week, the publication of the McEntee Commission`s report on the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings, which killed 33 people and injured over 300, was imminent. The report investigated issues such as why the Garda investigation ended prematurely, why certain leads were ignored and why documentation went missing.
The fact that agents of the British state acted in concert with unionist paramilitaries to inflict mass murder in the 26 Counties and that the Southern authorities did little or nothing to investigate such atrocities or prosecute those responsible is expected to be underlined by the Report.
Last week, in the wake of the completion of the report Sinn Féin Justice Spokesperson Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD called on the Taoiseach to recall the Dáil during the Easter holidays to allow time for a full and open debate on collusion.
Earlier this month Sinn Féin published a Dáil motion on collusion and again called on the Dublin Government to seek an inter-governmental conference with the British on the issue.
