This chapter first details the bombing of the pub called Tavern in the Town and a bar called the Mulberry Bush on the night of 21 November 1974. The two successful detonations had strewn severed limbs and corpses into the pubs and streets of the city, injuring 162 people and killing 21, the worst death toll as a result of any operation planned by the IRA. The discussions then turn to the events that precipitated the bombings; the widespread sense of crisis amongst the Irish in Birmingham resulting from the 1974 pub blasts; and the case of ‘Birmingham Six’.
