On the 25th January 2013 an armed robbery occurred at Lordship Credit Union, in the Cooley Peninsula in North County Louth, during which Detective Garda Adrian Donohue was shot dead. This was part of a pattern of such attacks in that area at that time and its widely accepted that the person who shot him was a member of whatever gang was active in those robberies during those months.

A long time later, and, we are informed by state authorities, after an exhaustative investigation, Aaron Brady, a young man from nearby in South Armagh and then in the USA, was accused and convicted of being part of this gang and of firing the fatal shot. He was sentenced to 40 years and is currently in prison in Ireland.

However no very convincing evidence of any of this was ever really put forward and instead he was convicted on the supposed basis that he had told two people in the New York area that he had killed a Garda. This very flimsy type of evidence is often seen in cases where a person is being framed for a crime (another similar case would be the late Catherine Nevin for example).

In any case it has developed into a vast saga of complicated facts, much of it gathered by Aaron Brady's father, and some of which was put before the courts in Aaron's appeal last year. For some completely unexplained reason, the result of his appeal has however been delayed a vast number of months, long after the court case has ended, but now we are told that the verdict will be in tomorrow, 11 July 2024 at 10am.

I urge all to follow this, I believe, miscarriage of justice closely because if they can frame a person in such a high profile case, and using such implausible evidence, then none of us are safe.

Well as I said its claimed by two people living in the New York area. They, or at least one of them, gave evidence in his trial by video link in very controversial circumstances.

Presumably such a claim would also need to be proven in any case. Anything else is hearsay

Yes you would imagine that kind of evidence is at least closely related to hearsay, but no that's what he was convicted on alright.

The former Garda John Wilson, nephew of former Tanaiste John Wilson, has said that the trial should have collapsed when one of the witnesses from the US was giving evidence on CCTV and seemed to be almost assaulted by some unknown person on the video stream. He said, on Gemma O'Doherty's live stream on Gettr, that it is going now to the Irish Supreme Court and after that to the European Court of Justice.

There has been a lot of internet chat recently about the innocence of Lucy Letby, the nurse convicted of killing several babies in England. Even at the time the evidence seemed very shaky.

In the same area of the country, was there ever a trial for that Import who killed the Japanese student in the Dundalk area.

Imo, The defence team made a massive mistake by claiming that the verdict was unsafe because the jury would have been afraid of the covid at the time, that is untrue because in the summer of 20, every idiot paddy believed that "we are beating this virus" thanks to 9€ meals in the pub and travel green lists with Greenland and Liechtenstein
