Soon off for another busy day...Would love to take you up on your offer, Teri, and "do it" myself, and maybe if I can get some peace this weekend I will do some research on my own. But, with such a vast amount of knowledge available through my fellow mudcatters, maybe I won't have to! :)
Teri has been extraordinarily kind to use some figures Wolfgang provided, one of the figures being 2055 deaths in the North attributed to "Republican paramilitaries." And, if anyone can help me with my questions, I would be very thankful.
1. What groups make up the "Republican paramilitaries"?
2. Assuming that the PIRA is one of those, how many deaths are they held accountable for out of the 2055?
3. Of those deaths attributed to the PIRA, how many were:
a. loyalist paramilitaries
b. British troops
d. political targets
Any help or answers would be really appreciated...and hopefully I'll be able to check into this myself tomorrow!
