The revelation that the IRA army council still exists and has not gone away, despite the strenuous claims of Gerry Adams and his cohorts in Sinn Féin, is alarming.
But equally of serious concern is that the two reports reveal several disparities between the two security services, who, we are constantly being reminded, enjoy the closest of close cross- border co-operation.
The report by the PSNI/MI5 presents as a frank and honest depiction of paramilitary groups while the one from An Garda Síochána presents as a watered-down fudge.
