    I can't recall any. The IRA were only spoken about in the news when they set off a bomb or kneecapped someone. We only saw them wearing military gear and face masks at funerals. They never spoke, we only heard what they had announced from a newsreader. It was a big event when they were finally allowed to speak on TV.

    Harry's Game (with iconic soundtrack by Clannad) was probably the most famous.

    The premise of the movie Patriot Games was an IRA attack on royalty.

    It is empty there were news reels and that was enough , we dont glorify murder or killing we had our wars and making programs glorifying guns,  murder is cheap entertainment
