It's been coming, so to speak. He was told he was getting it as a suspected tout.

Tommy Crossan was shot dead in the grounds of an industrial complex in West Belfast, in full view of surrounding houses, a local representative said.

A priest attended to pray over the bloodied victim in an area long known as a republican heartland but which has been relatively peaceful in recent years following the end of the IRA campaign in 1998.


Crossan was reportedly the Continuity IRA's former leader and was believed to be the subject of a death threat from his former allies.

The organisation has opposed the peace process which largely ended three decades of violence and transformed the region.

The attack happened at the Peter Pan Centre in Springfield Road, the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said.

The road, one of the main arterial routes, has been closed to traffic.

Family members have arrived and are said to be devastated.

The largely-nationalist area of Belfast is mainly made up of tightly-packed terraced housing estates and businesses.

These lads have not learnt much if any sense :

"Five men – aged between 50 and 70 - were arrested. They are known to gardai and have links to dissident groups and are being held in Dundalk Garda Station."

What's going on in north/west Belfast these days?  Are these punishment-style attacks a concerted attempt by these guys at a show of strength?  They seem to be almost nightly at the minute and with the two recent killings there's definitely been a marked escalation in activity.  From the news reports it would seem that it's clear to all and sundry in the area who is responsible.

If it is indeed dissident republicans as expected, then these dimwits are playing right into the hands of the DUP with an election looming. It takes the focus away from RHI and the DUP will now hope to make some political gain out of this incident.

The instability and political vacuum was always likely to pose a threat to peace in the north and a reminder that nothing should be taken for granted. I suspected that there might be a danger of this, with Brexit and government collapse.
