First confirmed find of Northern Bank Raid notes

The BBC are reporting that the PSNI have confirmed that the £50,000, in 5 shrink-wrapped bundles of consecutively numbered notes (sound like new notes that would have been virtually impossible to pass on), found at the Newforge Country Club in Belfast were from the Northern Bank heist. Meanwhile, RTÉ is reporting that it “understands that tests on the £60,000 seized at a house at Douglas in Cork City will confirm that it came from December’s raid on the Northern Bank”. Tracking the links between those two finds will be high on the agenda of the Gardai and PSNI investigating teams.
