A NAME FOR REBELLION..

A surprise guest of Sinn Fein in Leinster House during the week was one Robert McBride from South Africa.

Robert was sentenced to death in 1986 after he commanded an ANC cell which was responsible for a car-bombing in Durban which killed three people and injured 69, which no doubt made him a Sinn Fein hero.

He received a reprieve in 1992 as part of the post-apartheid settlement in South Africa.

Now Chief of Police in East Johannesburg, he was in Dublin as he traces his lineage back to Major John McBride who was executed following the Easter Rising of 1916.
