55. The IRA has many manifestations

Even here in America it existed as a political entity in the mid-late 1800s. I have found records of organizations and events to raise money for the IRA. Many Irish immigrants living in San Francisco were actively involved in these events and none of them involved bombs as bombs weren't what it was about at that time. It was more of a social organization for many Irish immigrants; a way to keep their links to the homeland.

But as you state, Sein Fein is more of a political wing these days, but the IRA itself has been around or a very long time -- longer than many may ever suspect!
