“Of course I’m sorry, it happened, and of course it’s heartbreaking,” Sinn F சின்in chairman Mary Lou McDonald said Sunday. The party is the political continuation of the IRA.

This is the first time the Irish Republican political leader has apologized for the bombing. McDonald’s predecessor Jerry Adams said Mountbatten was a “reasonable target” at the time.

At that time there was a bloody war in Northern Ireland, also known as The Troubles. The Catholic Republicans wanted it to be part of Ireland again, with pro-British and Protestant trade unions thinking Northern Ireland should be in the United Kingdom. 3,500 people died in the war. A peace agreement was concluded in 1998.

In recent weeks, tensions in Northern Ireland have risen again as a result of Brexit. Many pro-British residents are adamant against the new trade embargo introduced between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK as part of Britain’s exit from the EU.
