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."
