Two men in a car containing the device drove through a barrier at Clarendon Dock, near the offices, at about 7pm on Saturday. The car then appeared to catch fire and the two men ran off.
The attack was blamed on dissident Republicans, who are also thought to have been involved in a gunfight with police at Garrison, County Fermanagh, near the border with the Irish Republic, on Saturday night.
This has been roughly the situation for a century.
One group or another (usually calling themselves some variation of the IRA: the Official IRA, The IRA, The Real IRA etc etc) does terrorism. They get what they want/enough to keep them quiet/captured/shot/elected….and they stop the terrorism. But there\’s always one group out there on the edge that carry on.
Don\’t see it stopping just yet unfortunately.
