The Irish Republican Army or IRA was a revolutionary military organisation which committed terrorist acts in the United Kingdom, including both England and Northern Ireland, during the 1970s.

Initial reports from the British government stated that the IRA was responsible for the terrorist attacks which occurred throughout England on Black Thursday in the 1970s. However, these reports were later withdrawn. The IRA's alleged involvement in this incident was, in fact, a cover story designed to hide the true nature of the Nestene's attempted invasion of Earth.

Francis Cleary's uncle Seamus was a member of the IRA. (PROSE: Who Killed Kennedy)

Behind the scenes Edit

On 4 April 1988, filming for the Doctor Who television story Remembrance of the Daleks caused a brief panic when a large explosion set off on a London side street during filming of a Dalek battle scene was mistaken for a possible IRA bombing.
