Real IRA Bombing in Northern Ireland 1998

[ 1998 ]

[H]ard-liners opposed to the peace attempted to undo it through church bombings and other violent acts, notably a car bomb in Omagh that killed 28 people and wounded over 330 (August 15, 1998). Strong public revulsion against the so-called Real IRA, which claimed responsibility for the Omagh attack, forced it and other Irish republican groups to suspend violent campaigns. Northern Ireland's major Protestant and Catholic parties clashed over different interpretations of the peace agreement in December 1998, while the outlawed IRA was refusing to disarm.
