Despite the lead paragraph, the main points to note in this Belfast Telegraph story, IMO, are the quotes from the Police Ombudsman and Catherine McCartney. The Police Ombudsman’s spokeman states, “No-one from our office has met her [Cora Groogan] or taken her statement. She has not contacted us as far as I am aware”. Catherine McCartney has also stated “Sinn Fein’s first response was that she[Cora Groogan] left the bar at 8.30pm then they came back with the statement that she left at 11pm and saw nothing”. Update – “mixed messages” indeed.
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.
