The Real IRA attack was the worst single atrocity of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.The victims included a woman who was pregnant with twins as well as three schoolboys from Buncrana.Daly also faced two charges related to an attempted bomb attack in Lisburn, County Antrim, that took place four months before the Omagh bomb.Bail was refused because of police concerns that he may flee the jurisdiction.Seamus Daly has been connected to the bombing of Omagh before. Fourteen years ago the BBC’s Panorama programme named him as a suspect in the case, and a civil action brought by the relatives of some of the victims found him and three others liable for the attack, and ordered them to pay more than £1.5m damages.He has also previously pleaded guilty in the Republic of Ireland to membership of the IRA.He was remanded in custody to appear again in May.Mr Daly has always denied any involvement.MAN ACCUSED OF OMAGH BOMBING APPEARS IN COURT CHARGED WITH 29 MURDERS was last modified: April 11th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranacourtsOmagh bomblast_img read more
