Dolours Price,one of the women responsible for the 1973 IRA bombing of the Old Bailey has been found dead.

Price was imprisoned for her part in the attack on the courthouse in which one man was murdered and over 200 people injured.

Price, 62, was found by members of her family at her home in Malahide, north Dublin. Her death is not being treated as suspicious.

She and her sister Marian were part of the IRA unit that planted four car bombs outside the Old Bailey in 1973, with two of the bombs exploding.

Originally from Belfast, she was sentenced to life imprisonment for the bombing but incredibly released just eight years later in 1981 after being diagnosed with an eating disorder.

Price has been a fierce opponent of IRA mouthpiece Gerry Adams and has accused Adams of giving the orders for the Old Bailey court attack to go ahead and also alleges that he personally ordered the kidnapping of several people the IRA thought to be traitors in the 1970s.

She said that people who are informers ‘deserve to die’ and ‘that is the Republican way’.

The world will be a better place with this sort of evil gone forever.
