McCabe killers express regret for their actions

RTE is reporting that the killers of Garda Jerry McCabe have issued a statement expressing regret of the death of Mr McCabe and the wounding of garda Ben O’Sullivan.

“We deeply regret and apologise for this and the hurt and grief we have caused to their families. There was never any intent to attack any members of the Garda Síochána,” the men say in the statement, adding that they qualify for release under the Good Friday Agreement.

However, Jerry McCabe’s widow, Anne has already said they don’t and has also questioned the timing of the statement.
