    There isn't a general definition for "provos" since it's usually a term linked to specific historical or cultural contexts. However, in most scenarios, "provos" is a short term for Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA), a paramilitary organization that existed from 1969 to 1997 seeking the end of British rule in Northern Ireland and its accession into a united Ireland.
