The Real UFF have vowed to escalate their reign of terror on Catholic families in Antrim. The organization has claimed responsibility for the spate of pipe bomb attacks which have terrorized the community in recent weeks. In a phone call to the Antrim Guardian, a man claiming to represent the organization said they had carried out the recent attacks at Brantwood Gardens, Fountain Hill, the Steeple and at Caulside Park. He also issued a warning to all Catholics who 'fraternize with the Republican enemy' - and claimed that there would be further attacks.

A bomb attack in Lurgan, Northern Ireland, last weekend has been likened to the Omagh bombings by a senior officer and is believed to have been designed to harm police officers. The attack took place on August 14, the 12th anniversary of the Real IRA Omagh attack. Police received a telephone warning that a bomb had been left at a primary school, prior to the explosion, but it contained inaccurate information and people were directed towards the bomb as a result. Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) area commander Chief Inspector Sam Cordner said he had no doubt that the attack, which had “stark similarities” to the Omagh bombing in 1988, was aimed at police officers who would be putting traffic diversions in place.
Larry Murphy is in no way connected to the disappearance of Jo Jo Dullard, her sister Mary Phelan claims. Speaking exclusively to The Nationalist last week, the missing Callan woman’s sister stated: “I don’t think he is in any way connected with Jo’s disappearance.

Aoife Quinn only kept her husband-to-be, Dubliner Stephen Kelly, waiting for a very respectable 15 minutes. Dressed in a full-length, strapless, white ruffled gown, featuring a bow with diamante detail on the left thigh and a fishtail hemline, Aoife looked every inch the gorgeous bride.The simple elegance was completed with a long veil with satin trim and a bouquet of baby pink roses.

Last Wednesday was a day of high emotion for the more than 1,400 people across the county who collected their Leaving Certificate results. As usual, higher-level maths was a talking point as Clare principals speculated that pupils in the county had done as well in the subject this year, as they had in previous years. More than 43% of those who sat higher-level maths nationwide were awarded As or Bs. Anne Tuohy, principal of CBS Ennistymon, said “We had a 600-pointer with extras to spare and that is no mean achievement.
