They disbanded, that's about as "went away" as you can get. There are a few people still fighting the war the commanders called of years ago, c'est la vie. This is hardly the first example of the phenomenon.


By 'disbanded' you mean 'they lost the main supplier being The people of US (mostly the 'Irish' Americans who are as Irish as I Byzantine) because they learnt that funding terrorism was not fun any more after some dudes hit some towers with aircraft'

and thus could not do anything any-more.

bar randomly shooting some soldiers and Police officer and failing to bomb s**t.
Unrelated, the peace process was completed in 1995, with the Good Friday Agreement. The rest was compliance checks.

As for 9/11, meh. Terrorism has little meaning except that it applies to the people we call enemies. When we do it, it's just fine and dandy, like the terrorists in the revolutionary war that the US now calls patriots and heroes. :p

Or the British Army who likes to shoot unarmed Irish civilians and have no accountability for it.

The US was not the main supplier to the PIRA, although many funds came from Irish-American descendents, they were not the biggest supplier.
And the Americans stopped funding the PIRA in 1998 due to the Good Friday Agreement. 9/11 happened in 2001, therefore your point about the Americans stopping support to Ireland due to 9/11 is completely irrelevant.
And failing to bomb s**t? Have you even heard of the Warrenpoint Ambush? lol

The Provisional IRA formally stopped it's actions in 2005, however US support was still & currently being sent to splinter groups, Real & Continuity IRA. Many Provo's joined the splinter groups & sent them their arms instead of them being decommissioned.
Plus, the first signs of PIRA disbanding came in 1988, 13 years before the terrorist attacks on America. The Americans STILL funded republican groups after 9/11.
The Americans also stopped support to Britain in 1916 after the British security forces executed the 1916 Easter rising leaders.

What lasted a year then you entered World war one on Britain's side

also it's quite the bad idea to stage a insurrection when the Empire your trying to be rid off is at total war and is obviously not going to take any crap and is going to deal with stuff quite forcefully.

Ireland never entered WWI on Britain's side. Few Irishmen joined privately but they were punished when they returned. Churchill even targeted De Valera's & Ireland' neutrality in the war, and condemned him for not siding with Britain. This was obvious seeing as Ireland was always friendly with Nazi Germany. The Nazi's sent arms to the IRA & sent SS elite troops to train new IRA volunteers. Hitler even apologized for the Dublin bombing and stated he had much respect for Ireland. De Valera sent condolences to Germany on behalf of the Irish people on the news of Hitler's death.

And Britain were at war when we gained independence in 1921. And I don't see how it's a bad idea, Britain were always afraid their enemies would use Ireland to attack. So now that Britain is at war & has current enemies, they could always be harboring in Ireland. Plus, the British always used cowardly tactics in war, and I'm sure they still use those tactics in Afghanistan. These actions will come to haunt Britain, for every civilian you murder in Afghanistan, you are breeding a new terrorist family.

Ireland never entered WWI on Britain's side because until 1922 Ireland didn't exist.

Britain has always had trouble with Ireland and Irish Nationalists since the Tudor days, they just never wanted to hand over the country because of their imperialist ambitions.

I was taking about "The Americans stopping support to Britain in 1916"

also we never wanted to hand over the country over because it was a strategic location to the safety of the mainland.

If we did not have it France would of had it or Norway Spain or any other Kingdom/Nation what has be a threat to England/UK.

France or Spain has never really needed Ireland in order to attempt an invasion of England. Norway had already occupied itself with fight the scots.

The strategic value was in claiming solid ownership of the whole of the British Isles. But why should that matter to Irish people?
Comrade Texada Wolf

they disarmed and stopped armed conflict in 2005

Officially.

They were inactive after the Belfast Agreement, which is when they ended their campaign and reinstated a cease-fire.

2005 is when they officially declared a permanent end to it armed status.

WWI, yes, however in WWII Ireland stayed neutral for we did not want to destroy our alliance with Germany. Or with any country for that matter. Plus, the Free-State army was unpopular and were constantly being attacked by anti-treaty forces. There was no way Ireland could have afforded to send troops in aid of the Allies.

The American's cease of aid to Britain in 1916 had nothing to do with WWI as far as I know. Woodrow Wilson said he was deeply saddened by the execution of the Easter Rising's leaders.
