Meanwhile, In Stormont



Former Irish Independent journalist Gemma O’Doherty and former Garda John Wilson with representatives of families seeking justice for their dead relatives in Stormont Castle yesterday

UTV’s news report last night on how a group of families, accompanied by former Irish Independent journalist Gemma O’Doherty and former Garda John Wilson travelled to Stormont Castle yesterday to seek help in their attempts to get justice for deceased relatives.

The families feel gardaí did not carry out proper investigations into their cases.

They made the journey North to meet senior politicians because, despite attempts, they say they couldn’t get a meeting with Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

The group included Lucia O’Farrell, mother of hit-and-run victim Shane O’Farrell, who died in August 2011;  Anne and Eamonn Tuohey, parents of Shane Tuohey, who died in Clara, Co Offaly in 2002; Cyril Goonan, brother of Jim Goonan, who was killed in Birr, Co Offaly in 2002; and Ann Doherty, twin sister of Mary Boyle (6) who went missing in Donegal in 1977. Brian Sheridan, a former Director of Elections for Fine Gael in Laois/Offaly and who has been campaigning for justice for murdered Fr Niall Molloy, also attended.

Sinn Féin have also created a video of the group’s meeting with Martin McGuinness here, which includes an interview with Gemma in which she talked about “a dangerous and close relationship” between certain sections of the media in the Republic of Ireland and the gardaí.
