Another vile show of RIRA pageantry on the way

Gardaí are bracing them for a show of force by masked dissident Republicans at the funeral of slain Real IRA gangster Vinny Ryan.
For a third time in as many weeks, heavily-armed police will be deployed to watch over the burial of a gangland murder victim.
The purpose of the operation will be two-fold: prevent a further attack on the dissident criminals in attendance, and keep an eye on the dregs of the Republican movement who turn up to pay their respects.
