Edward Haughey ( Lord Ballyedmond) targetted by 70lb bomb
Multi millionaire businessman Edward Haughey ( honoured by Britian with the title "Lord Ballyedmond") has been targetted in a bomb attack in Co Louth close to the border with South Armagh . A farm labourer discovered a 70lb device attached to a command wire at a house owned by the controversial pharmaceutical giant renowned for his aggressive stance against trade union "interference" in his business affairs , a high handed and bullying manner towards his employees and riding roughshod over the local ccommunities in which his homes and businesses are located . A former 26 county senator aligned with Fianna Fail in the early 80s he then switched formal allegiance to the British conservative party and later the Ulster Unionist party whom he represents in the British House of Lords .
The targetting of Edward Haughey with a large explosive device at his home is the first time the capitalist bully boy has come under the direct attention of republicans (whom gardai have identified as prime suspects behind the bomb attempt ) despite a lengthy past of provocative and cynical behaviour by the industrialist . Notorious for bullying and intimidating his workforce and neighbours , in the immediate aftermath of the 1981 hungerstrikes Haughey cynically invited British PM Margaret Thatcher to stay at his mansion in Rostrevor in nationalist south Down in what was felt at the time to be a deliberate insult towards the nationalist people of the surrounding area . He also allowed the private beach on his estate to be used by British Royal marine commandos as a resting point during boat patrols from their warship stationed in Carlingford Lough . These troops in particular had an extremely nasty and brutal attituide towards the local population and were regularly wined and dined by Haughey in his mansion residence .
