Daily Ireland gives some space to the statement from the men convicted of the manslaughter of the Garda Jerry McCabe.
the Irish government had an ‘obligation’ to release them from Castlerea Prison in Co Roscommon. ‘The Irish government have refused to do so and are now presenting our release as an obstacle to negotiations and agreement. For this reason, we do not want our release to be part of any further negotiations with the Irish government’.
