Man charged over Newry bomb (Newsletter)
The brother of a former IRA woman has appeared in court charged with a bomb attack in Newry earlier this year.
Ciaran Farrell, whose sister Mairead was one of three republicans gunned down by the SAS in 1988, appeared at the same magistrates’ court in the city that he is accused of blowing up.
The 51-year-old, arrested in the Dunmurry area on Monday, is charged with the dissident republican car bombing that caused substantial damage to the outside of the court in February.
Mr Farrell, who denies the charges, was refused bail and will appear again by video link on 23 June.
It was also revealed in court that police are seeking to speak to a second individual they believe was involved in the terror incident.
After the February 22 blast, a senior police officer said it is a “miracle” no-one was killed or injured the explosion.
The car bomb damaged the gates of the courthouse and went off as police were evacuating the area.
The attack was blamed on dissident republicans.
