Old enemies confront the past…

WHILE it has been three decades since Lieutenant Cliff Burrage served in Belfast, his latest trip is likely to be as memorable as the first visit, when he shot dead Ardoyne man Michael McLarnon. Burrage now recognises he made a mistake, and met with the dead man’s sister to try to acknowledge what she always believed – that he shot a civilian. Now facing the truth, Burrage has gone one further, and met the man he might have meant to hit… former paramilitary commander and Sinn Fein politician, Martin Meehan.
