I am sure you recall what happened to Irish policeman Jerry McCabe. He was shot to death by an IRA gang in 1996. At the time, Gerry Adams explained that the IRA had nothing to do with his killing. Turns out they did – but then Gerry never was good with the truth. Now he has changed his tune..
” The Chairwoman of the RUC George Cross Widows Association has welcomed Gerry Adams’ apology to the family of Garda Jerry McCabe. The Irish police officer was murdered by the IRA in 1996. Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams made the apology in the Irish parliament and said “dreadful deeds cannot be undone”.
Phyllis Carrothers, whose husband Douglas was murdered in 1991, would now like to hear an apology to the families of RUC officers.
The republican movement have issued apologies before, notably in 2002 and 2003, to what they termed non combatants. The IRA also acknowledged the grief and pain of the families of police and soldiers – and it is to that group that some now believe the IRA should apologise. In 1991 Douglas Carrothers an RUC reservist was killed when the IRA booby-trap bomb exploded under his car in County Fermanagh. His widow, Phyllis Carrothers, says it is now time the IRA apologised to RUC families.
Quite so. Let them apologise to the RUC FAMILIES and THEN let them provide the Police which details of who carried out these VILE murders and who authorised such horrendous atrocities as La Mon House Hotel. I am certain Mr Adams will want to do both…..
