RTÉ News reports on a loyalist attack on a pub in Dublin.

The UVF claimed responsibility for the attack on a pub in Dublin on 21 May 1994. Men brought a bomb in a hold all to The Widow Scallan's pub in Pearse Street. A crowd was watching football downstairs while a fundraising event for republican prisoners and their families was going on upstairs.

Doorman Martin Doherty challenged the bombers, who shot him several times. He died later in hospital. A second man was also injured during the shooting.

An eyewitness describes finding a man injured on the ground and trying to help him. Garda spokesman Superintendent Brian O'Higgins says the bomb would have caused carnage if it had gone off.
