Just over 4 years ago now, the son of Private Patrick Kelly, a soldier shot in Ballinamore Woods in peculiar circumstances, confronted Martin Mc Guinness, who was then the SF candidate in the Presidential election.
The confrontation caused a bit of a media frenzy at the time, and lead for calls for the investigations in the soldiers death, and that of a young Garda recruit Gary Sheehan.
Such calls were universally supported at the time.
But in the four years since, there seems to have been no advance in the investigations whatsoever ?
One has to wonder why the Justice Establishment has taken so little interest in this, given the deaths of two men who were part of the security forces of the State.
Or, perhaps there is truth in the rumour which abounded at the time, and has persisted since, that both men were in fact killed be members of the same security forces of which they were a part of, in an incident of "friendly fire", which has been conveniently covered up by blaming the deaths on members of the IRA.
Isn't it strange how such news stories consistently appear prior to elections, only to disappear again afterwards ?
So does anyone know.. what happened to this "investigation" ?
