The end of the IRA attacks in Germany “generated a windfall of £ 8 billion for the Republic”


The promise that the IRA attacks on British soldiers in Germany would end has helped the Irish government secure £ 8 billion from the EU, according to the author of a new book.

aoiseach Albert Reynolds is said to have secured key backing for his funding offer from German Chancellor Helmut Kohl on the grounds that he would use his influence with the Provisions to prevent soldiers overseas from being targeted.

The startling claim is made in a biography of Reynolds by former Fianna Fail minister and journalist-turned-businessman Conor Lenihan.
