In October 1993 the Provisional IRA planted a bomb in a busy fish shop on Belfast's Shankill Road. The device exploded prematurely and ten people died including one of the IRA members responsible for the attack. On the 20th anniversary, relatives of the dead gathered with local residents and first responders in memory of the innocent who died.
On occasion violence from the North's violent conflict spilled over into the Republic. In May 1974 more than thirty civilians lost their lives in a coordinated loyalist no warning car bomb attack.
