UK: NORTHERN IRELAND: WHO FOUGHT WHO IN NORTHERN IRELAND?


It is not so much a fight between ordinary Catholic and Protestant citizens but rather a fight between extremist groups from either side of the divide. If one group carries out a violent act, it is usually responded by the other. The killings involved are usually referred to as sectarian or 'tit for tat' - killings. These are the extremist groups:
Catholics Protestants
IRA (the Irish Republican Army)
Provisional IRA (Provos)
INLA (the Irish National Liberation Army)
UVF (Ulster Volunteer Force)
UDA (Ulster Defence Association)
UFF (Ulster Freedom Fighters)
The military structure of the IRA
