The World

January 26, 1987

Irish Prime Minister Garret FitzGerald dismissed press reports that British and U.S. secret services have been bugging the Irish Embassy in London, saying there is no evidence. The Irish Times and Britain's Observer newspaper reported that British and U.S. intelligence experts had intercepted and broken the codes on secret messages sent by the Irish Embassy in London to the Dublin government. But FitzGerald questioned whether the British secret service would bother "spending time listening to what we are saying to each other."
