Hey ulsterman what is going on?

The police officer gunned down in Northern Ireland in the third killing in three days has been named as Constable

He was was shot dead in Craigavon, Co Armagh on Monday night and IRA offshoot the Continuity IRA has claimed responsibility.

It said in a coded message: "As long as there is British involvement in Ireland, these attacks will continue."

That a second terrorist organisation in Northern Ireland has stepped up its activities will send shockwaves through the province.

The murder follows those of British soldiers Sapper Mark Quinsey, 23, and Sapper Patrick Azimkar, 21, on Saturday as they collected a pizza from delivery men at the gates of Massereene Barracks in Antrim. The Real IRA claimed responsibility.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown condemned Constable Carroll's "murderers" but insisted: "There will be no return to the old days."

Mr Brown said: "My first first thoughts are for the family of the very brave policeman who has been killed and for the police force."

"These are murderers who are trying to distort, disrupt and destroy a political process that is working for the people or Northern Ireland.

He said the people of the province "do not want a return to guns on the street".

Speaking about the gunmen, Mr Brown said: "They will never be allowed to destroy or undermine the political process."

Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) chief constable Sir Hugh Orde said the dead officer was going to the aid of a terrified woman when he was shot.

He added: "We are used to being attacked - but we will not step back.

"It is a sad day for the Police Service of Northern Ireland.

"A police officer with his colleagues responding to a call for help from a vulnerable person in the community was gunned down.

"Let me be very clear on a couple of things. First of all, this will not put off me or my officers delivering the service we do to the communities we paid to protect. That will continue unrelenting as it has done in the threat that we have been facing for nine to 12 months.

"We will continue to deliver that service regardless of the threat but mindful of it."

He declined to link the shooting with the murder of the two soldiers.

Northern Ireland's First Minister Peter Robinson said: "It is with great sadness that I have learned of the murder of a police officer in the Lismore area of Craigavon.

"This officer was serving his community at the time of the incident.

"I unreservedly condemn this evil deed and offer my sincere sympathy to the officer's family circle. The entire police family is in my thoughts and prayers at this time.

"I am sickened at the attempts by terrorists to destabilise Northern Ireland. Those responsible for this murderous act will not be allowed to drag our Province back to the past.

"On behalf of the Democratic Unionist Party and the people we represent, I would urge the Prime Minister and the Chief Constable to take whatever steps are necessary to ensure that innocent life is protected in the face of this terrorist threat across Northern Ireland


"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if you have one."
- George Bernard Shaw to Winston Churchill.

"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second ... if there is one."
- Winston Churchill, in response.

same old same old
i must say even an ould cynic like me was gunked at how surprised I was at these two incidents.
and even if Gerry's denouncment lacked conviction, especially after his comments last week about "special forces" not being needed over here/ not welcome over here.
ALL the politicans are now singing offen the same hymsheet
Me: I favour a few quiet executions, (rather than quite a few) of the correct people of course.
live by the sword
