Indeed; the British government never underestimated the IRAA. Thankfully, the permanent ceasefire brought peace to Northern Ireland. Or rather, it stopped IRA bombs going off in England, which is all the British Government (and the British public) ever cared about.
I'm just glad I live in Britain - yes, the IRA used to be a threat to me, but the RIAA never will.
