Ian Paisley uses a unionist rally as an opportunity to comment on the cabinet crisis in the Republic of Ireland over gun running.
On 9 May 1970 Ian Paisley addressed a cheering crowd of about 1,500 and commented on the cabinet crisis in the Republic over the gun running trials.The rally was organised by the Ulster Protestant Volunteers in Maghera, Co. Derry. In his address Paisley implicated the Taoiseach Jack Lynch in gun-running activities.
I want to tell you that Mr Lynch is just as dangerous to the North of Ireland as Neil Blaney or Mr Haughey, or Boland, or the rest of the gang. They're all tarred with the same brush.
Paisley continues by warning Jack Lynch that Ulster will not bow to him or any others.
