The Provisional Irish Republican Army, abbreviated to IRA, is a group in Northern Ireland which advocates forcing the British out of Northern Ireland and uniting it with the rest of Ireland. Until 2005, they used and advocated violence in an attempt to reach that goal since the late 1916, starting with the Easter Rising. They renounced such activity as part of the cease fire to end the violence in Northern Ireland in 1998, though some split radical groups continued violence until 2005.
