A man from the Royal County deserves our appreciation for putting pen to paper.  J. Cuffe’s letter in the Irish Independent, Saturday, 20th July, 2013 has raised very interesting questions.  Noel Callan, now 50 was jailed in 1985  with co-accused Michael McHugh for the murder of a “heroic” Garda Sergeant, Patrick Morrissey.  The death sentence imposed was subsequently commuted by the President, on the advice of the Government, to 40 years penal servitude. Now, after 28 years, 5 Supreme Court Judges have unanimously ruled that Noel Callan is entitled to statutory remission, including the greater remission available for good behaviour.  Read J.

One Response to WHO PROTECTS THE —– GARDAI ?

    This is a technicality that must be resolved speedily by the introduction of legislation which should copper fasten a 40 year without remission sentence. The prevalence of firearms is going to lead to further Garda deaths. In a Garda versus armed criminal situation the criminal should have no doubt that pulling the trigger and murdering a Garda will means 40 years imprisonment.
