Paisley blames Republic for 1974 bombings

IAN Paisley has effectively accused the then Irish government of provoking the 1974 Dublin and Monaghan bombings, which killed 33 people.

The former DUP leader declared: "They brought that on themselves" as he revisited the standout moments of his career for a BBC series.

He stuck to his statement that he was anti-Catholic but said: "I love the poor dupes who are ground down under that system."
