Interesting line of enquiry originating from the An Phoblacht News Service is that the area in which the kidnap operation took place was “an area associated with unionist paramilitaries”. Interesting, and undoubtedly true – though Drumkeeragh Forest where the hostage’s wife was dropped, is isolated, it’s not exactly a strongly Unionist area. This one’s best put on the back burner pending more convincing corroborative evidence.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
