The information on feuds among paramilitary organisations (between Loyalist groups or between Republican groups) in Northern Ireland has been extracted from the pages on the CAIN site. Anyone looking for additional information should follow the general advice on finding information on a particular topic.

Feuds have been a feature of most of the 30 years of the conflict in Northern Ireland since the split in the Republican movement into the Official and Provisional wings in January 1970. The most bloody feuds have taken place between rival paramilitary organisations but feuds have also occurred within single organisations. The information provided includes the list of deaths taken from the Sutton database, together with information from the main chronologies.
