The Continuity IRA (CIRA) broke from the Provisionals back in 1986 over the issue of abstentionism in Dáil Éireann, but did not begin military attacks until the ceasefire in 1994. This somewhat cryptic graffiti in Beechmount Avenue, Belfast, insists that recent events such as a split in the organisation and decommissioning by the Provisionals will change the CIRA’s status. “CIRA – 2. Delayed No Chance”
