There has been a long history (from Fenian times) through to the present of the IRA bombing English targets. In the 1970's this was done out of a sense of "one bomb in London is worth 100 in Belfast". Also, according to "Armed Struggle:The History of the IRA" by Richard English British negotiators had said during secret negotiations with the IRA that a large bombing campaign would persuade them to leave Northern Ireland.
