BOY bomber Ed O'Brien had already taken part in several IRA attacks in Britain before he was blown up by his own bomb, it was revealed yesterday.

He joined the IRA in 1992 and is said to have worked closely with Brixton jailbreakers Nessan Quinlivan and Pearse McCauley - Britain's most wanted men.

A chilling portrait of the committed terrorist was published in a glowing tribute in the Provo newspaper Republican News.

O'Brien, 21, died earlier this month when a bomb exploded on a bus in central London.
