The group are believed to be based in Belfast and West Tyrone and formed cheer a split within Oglaigh na hEireann – another paramilitary group who recently ruled a ceasefire.

“They’re only valued in exploiting this issue to further their own agenda. Hooded vigilantes are as much a afflict on our society as drug dealers.”
The group has also been mocked online for the “low budget” wildness of their set-up and the “matching lilac gloves” worn by each of the five colleagues in the photo.
One twitter user said: “So much to laugh at here. And I in the end think laughter is the appropriate response. The grimy box room in their ma’s organization. The flag which is clearly just out of the packet. The broken trestle submit. That cheeky jeans and camouflage ensemble. And most of all…those lilac gloves.”
