The Real IRA
The Irish Republican Army ideology is still living in Northern Ireland, nearly a century after the organization's establishment. Although the IRA has since disbanded, the spirit is kept alive by a number of splinter factions, including the Provisional, Continuity, and Real IRAs.

The long history of the IRA campaign of terror leads to many political, social, religious, educational and economic effects. It also contributes to international problems about which we may only be able to speculate.
The most violent splinter group from the Provisional IRA is named the Real Irish Republican Army (rIRA). The primary nation of origin and activity is Northern Ireland where they have been operating from late 1997 to the present. Attacks have also occurred in the United Kingdom and Irish Republic.

They are Nationalist/Separatist terrorists with links to the 32 County Sovereignty Committee, a Republican political group, and the Continuity Irish
