Former First Minister says Dublin had a "ridiculous" attitude to North

Ian Paisley has said the Irish Government's attitude was to blame for the Dublin and Monaghan bombings.

The former Stormont First Minister says the attitude of leaders in Dublin led to the loyalist bombings that killed 33 people.

He made the comments in a landmark BBC interview - which he says will be the last he ever does.

But Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore has said the blame can only lie with the loyalists responsible for the attacks.

Our political correspondent Gavan Reilly reports.

Later the current First Minister and Dr Paisley's successor, Peter Robinson, distanced himself from the comments:
