Yes that was a terrible time, I remember it well it was shocking.
I read somewhere that it was Charles Haughey who didn't want the remains flown to Dublin as it would bring unnecessary attention to the Republic.
Speaking of Michael Stone, I saw recently it is possible that he is due for parole/release soon. He's some nutjob. He wasn't even born in Ireland.
