The Compassionate Terrorist


In the early seventies, the war between the Irish Republican Army and the British Army had reached a cease-fire. However, it was not to last long, and it seemed that these stalling tactics suited both sides. But things were due to change for the worse, and they soon resulted in horrific outcomes. On one of the border towns two young Catholics found themselves in the mood for excitement and wanted to join the IRA and carve their names with pride. The IRA?had re-organised their strategy, with small cells working independently in ‘target areas’ where it would create better opportunities to hurt the British and get their point across. One such target area was the Oil Terminal that was under construction at Sullom Voe in the Shetland and the closer the opening ceremony came, the more sinister the plot became. Having joined the workforce, one worker was unaware of the presence of terrorist activities and, having accidentally overheard a dangerous plan for the opening ceremony, takes it upon himself to change the course of events. It soons become apparent that the British are at risk of losing much more than an oil supply. Will the IRA?succeed?
