SUBJECT: IRISH TO JOIN EU STATEMENT ON SHRINE BOMBING

REF: SECSTATE 28802

Classified By: Deputy Chief of Mission Jonathan S. Benton for
reasons 1.4 (b) and (d).

(C ) On February 23, Pol/Econ Chief delivered reftel
demarche to Stephen Dawson, DFA First Secretary for the
Middle East. Dawson said that Minister of State Noel Treacy
condemned the bombing at a meeting of the parliament's
subcommittee on Europe. Dawson added that the Irish stood
behind the EU's statement, and were not planning to issue a
separate one. He took on board the request to consider
helping to fund the shrine's re-construction. He said there
had not yet been discussion within the GOI of such funding
but that the GOI would now consider the U.S. request.
