Omagh bombing, a united cause and Griffin’s 30-yard strike: when Northern Ireland came to Dublin in 1999
In May 1999, a charity match was organised to raise funds for victims of the Omagh bombing. Former defender Danny Griffin recalls the game and his winning goal.
The 1998 bombing was the single worst atrocity of the Troubles.
The Real IRA car bomb killed 29 people and two unborn children.
Things got emotional.
Michael McKevitt and Liam Campbell argued that a civil trial against them was unfair.
A spokesperson for the PPS said that the evidence simply was not there to secure a conviction.
But the information could not have prevented the attack according to a new report.
Michael Campbell was originally sentenced to 12 years in prison but his conviction was overturned.
Daly and three others were found to be responsible for the 1998 attack in a civil action.
The man will appear in Dungannon Magistrates Court this morning.
Human rights watchdog Amnesty International says that questions remain unanswered over the policing and intelligence gathering around the 1998 bombing which killed 29 people.
Michael McKevitt fails in a bid to have his conviction overturned because of evidence obtained under an unconstitutional warrant.
The retrial found Seamus Daly and Colm Murphy liable on the grounds of trespass to the person.
Eamon Gilmore says that gardaí and the PSNI will maintain a close relationship, but that the govt isn’t pushing for an all-island inquiry.
Michael McKevitt will speak to the tribunal at the Special Criminal Court in Dublin today. He is currently serving a 20-year sentence after being found guilty of directing terrorism.
Prime Minister David Cameron is to call a press conference on the hacking scandal today.
