Apology / correction
IN our editions dated February 2 & 3 we carried an article about the murder of Mr Alan McNally.
Our article was accompanied by a photograph which incorrectly depicted an entirely unconnected individual as Alan McNally.
The individual in question is still alive and is not involved in gangland crime or drug trafficking.
We take this opportunity to correct the record and apologise to the individual in question.
Burglar has his prison term cut
A BURGLAR jailed for six years for a string of break-ins had his sentence reduced by two years on appeal.
Mr Justice Joseph Finnegan, at the Court of Criminal Appeal, said that ex heroin addict William Moorehouse (21), of Glendruid Halting Site, Shankill, Co Dublin, was entitled to "one opportunity to put his life together".
Moorehouse had been serving consecutive sentences amounting to six years for a series of offences.
His counsel said the sentencing judge did not give sufficient regard to his client's guilty plea and a report saying he did not pose a violent threat.
