The next skeleton in the cupboard would seem to be Bart Fisher, the man convicted of the manslaughter of James McGinley. He issued a statement at the weekend stating that he was not a member of either the IRA or Sinn Fein but, according to Morning Ireland, is currently being held on the political wing (sound file) of Magherberry Prison.
Update: The family has denied most of the allegations.
