IRA Raid On British Army Barracks

This TG4 documentary looks back on the 1954 IRA raid upon the British Army Base of Gough Barracks, in Armagh City. During this raid, the IRA team commandeered all weapons in the base without firing a shot.

Some of those who took part in that daring raid speak of their experiences in this insightful piece of video. It was a masterstroke by the Republican militants.
