  1. Was the Hunger Strike Campaign of the 1980s the most significant IRA action of that decade?

    In a sense, he was getting the opinion across to people that non-violent action could still generate enormous public attention. However what drew more public attention was Bobby sand?s own death in May 1981 when he succumbed to starvation after his sixty sixth day of his hunger strike. A source showing a picture taken in May 1981 during his funeral shows thousands of people surrounding and marching behind his coffin as it is carried down a street. This source tells us that Bobby Sand?s death proved very significant in the IRA actions as his death grasped the publics, and media?s, full attention.
