Further to Naoise’s early report of arrests in the McCartney case, there’s not much in the way of further detail. BBC Northern Ireland and Birmingham have published this report in the last hour. Tommie Gorman report on RTE this morning that this has the feel of something more substantial than the ten earlier arrests in this case, in which all were released after refusing to make statements. The dead man’s sisters remain determined that a proper investigation should centre on the actions of all the people involved in the fracas inside and outside of Mcgennis’s Bar.
