REPUBLICAN CHARGED WITH OMAGH BOMBING REMANDED IN CUSTODY

A 43-year-old man charged with murdering 29 people in the Omagh bombing in 1998 has been remanded in custody to appear in court again next month.

Seamus Daly, from Cullavill in Co. Monghan but now living in Jonesborough in Co. Armagh was arrested on Monday.

The prominent republican appeared at Dungannon Magistrates’ Court this morning amid a heavy security presence.

Michael Gallagher’s son Aidan was killed in the bomb blast.

“Well actually I dreamt about him last night” he said.

“You just wonder why you were there, why you were not allowed to grieve, why you were not allowed to get on with a normal life”.

“But because of the person that he was, we just can’t walk away and say it was one of those things” he added.
