The incendiary disclosure by the Police Service of Northern Ireland that they believe the IRA had an organisational role in the murder of former Provo Kevin McGuigan is potentially embarrassing for the Garda Commissioner Nóirín O'Sullivan.

In February, Ms O'Sullivan sent a letter of comfort to Sinn Féin which the party's propaganda machine has milked for all it's worth.

She said that gardaí "have no information or intelligence to support the assertion that the Provisional IRA still maintains its military structure".
