Pressure brings (some) results

RTÉ is reporting that there has been an IRA statement in which they state that, after “an investigation”, the three individuals responsible for the murder of Robert McCartney have been dismissed from the organisation. But, so far, only one individual has, as the BBC reports “made a statement to his solicitor”. Timing, eh? No-one, at this time, is in custody, or, has been charged.

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.
