Latest PSNI incursion into Donegal Condemned

category donegal | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Saturday August 21, 2010 16:16author by éirígí Sligeach - éirígíauthor email eirigisligeach at gmail dot com Report this post to the editors

For at least the third time this year a PSNI/RUC patrol crossed over the border from Belleek in Co Fermanagh into Co Donegal.

Sligo éirígí activist Gerry Casey has slammed the latest incursion by armed British forces across the border into the 26-counties. He was speaking following revelations that the PSNI crossed the border from Belleek in County Fermanagh into County Donegal on Thursday August 12th.

A PSNI spokesperson attempted to justify the incursion by saying that it was a “simple mistake” and that “the officers were from the Omagh area and not familiar with local landmarks.”

Yet this is at the very least the third incursion by the PSNI at this very same location this year alone. On both previous occasions, once when they set up a checkpoint and stopped cars in County Donegal and on a second occasion when they entered a shop south of the border, the PSNI ignored locals who told them they were out of their juridstiction.

This excuse that the PSNI were unaware of where exactly the border lies is absolute nonsense. Do the PSNI honestly expect people to believe that they send their officers out to patrol the border without knowing where the border actually is? The border is clearly marked with the bridge over the Erne river seperating Fermanagh from Donegal. Signposts welcoming people to Donegal also give the game away for any supposedly 'below intelligence' or 'lost' PSNI personnel.

Rubbishing the PSNI 'excuses' Casey said: “Incursions by the British military and police south of the border are nothing new. Over the past few decades they have regularly crossed the border for a host of various reasons, from intimidation, to intelligence gathering to murder, as in the instance of John Francis Green who was assassinated in county Monaghan. British army helicopters have also regularly overflown and indeed have even landed south of the border .”

He continued: “On a number of occasions, armed British soldiers from both regular units and undercover SAS units have been apprehended in this state by the Gardai. In stark contrast to the 26-county states treatment of those who engaged in resistance against the British occupation, these armed terrorists were released without charge and sent back across the border to continue their operations against nationalist and republican communities.”

“Particularly reprehensible has been the silence and lack of action by what passes for government in Leinster House. However, we shouldn't be surprised at that considering it is only a few months back that Donegal Fianna Fáil Senator Cecilia Keaveney proposed allowing British troops to operate in the 26 counties in some circumstances.”

Casey concluded: “This latest incursion is just the latest example of a police force that have not changed their ways as the nationalist parties in Stormont would have us believe. They continue to act as a law unto themselves, to engage in harrassment and intimidation of northern nationalists as well as political repression of those, including éirígí activists, who oppose the continued British occupation. The PSNI remain a heavily armed unaccountable and unchanged British paramilitary force enforcing British rule in Ireland and, as they showed once again in Ardoyne on the 12th July, they are willing to use whatever force necessary to maintain the occupation.”

FFS its not as if they went in, kicked in doors, smashed windows, slapped small children and then arrested people, which you think they did judging by the way some of yous are going on.
I wonder if the Guards did the same thing in the North if you'd be so up in arms. I doubt it some how.
Big deal - catch yourselves on for Gods sake!

So you think it ok for a foreign police force to set up a checkpoint in this state Podge as they done earlier this year in donegal? And they have got up to all sorts on this side of the border in the past too. Dublin/Monaghan bombs,the murder of eddie Fullerton and that ofJohn Green like the article mentioned, the kidnap of Sean Mckenna from his house in county Louth are just some of the examples of British incursions into this state

job creation opportunity for some person who wants to work , get the P.S.N.I. to get in
touch with named person who will then assist same P.SN.I. to the correct location of
which they in The P.S.N.I. may then set up their little soap boxes or whatever they do .

this idea could catch on & all applicants should have a good knowledge of their local
area's , in the meantime let us all go back to discussing ways to survive this recession .

Sceptic
Like your idea for providing someone with gainful employment.
Alternatively, provide the PSNI along the border with some shiney new GPS systems.

...FBI in Garda HQ and ask them to send up a battallion from their airbase at Shannon to rein in their poodle. Or are they 'good cop'?
