They also state that they will be doing searches of people and vehicles.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, it is good to see that both Dublin City and Monaghan Town Councils have supported the JFF call for British files to be opened regarding these killings. Dublin City Council passed a motion on Monday night (9th May 2011) and Monaghan Town council also supported the move in their April meeting.

However, up in Dublin castle things are moving ahead in St. Patricks Hall, preparing the place for visitors while outside on one of the entrances 'lady justice' has her back turned to the people of Dublin, not even blindfolded!

http://www.politics.ie/sinn-fein/160596-sinn-fein-hang-....html

Dublin Sinn Féin activists unveil a banner at the Sinn Féin bookshop in Parnell Square calling on the British Government, during the visit to Ireland by Elizabeth Windsor, to release all the documentation it has in relation to the Dublin and Monaghan bombings of 1974. It is widely believed that British security forces assisted the loyalists who carried out the bombings leaving 34 people dead and hundreds injured.
