Lone Wolf all alone in prison as dissident gangs shun her

DISSIDENT lone wolf Christine Connor was given the cold shoulder when she returned to prison this week.

Follow this link to find out more:

The Sunday World can reveal she was ignored by some inmates after it was revealed she had been slagging of members of Óghlaigh na hÉireann on social media for not murdering members of the PSNI/RUC. The 35-year-old called ONH out for failing to kill a cop, claiming they weren’t committed to the armed struggle, just making money. Connor was taken under the wing of the NIRA when she was first imprisoned with Soaradh campaigning on her behalf when she claimed she was being mistreated behind bars. She fell in with the then Real IRA, which is now the current day NIRA, after sharing a cell in Hydebank Prison with Sharon Rafferty who befriended a terrified Connor. Rafferty was was the first person to be jailed in the North of Ireland under terror laws brought in to combat home-grown Islamic extremism.


Rafferty, who now sits on the board of Saoradh, was one of a gang of four jailed for a string of terrorist-related offences including the setting up for a training camp at Formil Wood on the outskirts of Omagh, Co Tyrone. Sources say she is still supportive of Connor.

Soaradh the so-called political wing of the NIRA

“Sharon has kept in touch and Soaradh has to because she is a prisoner of war, it’s their duty, but she is hard work, completely delusional.” Sources say Connor is already struggling inside and is unpopular with fellow inmates. And this time she is alone, with no fellow dissident to share her cell and offer her support and protection. The last time she was behind bars she was repeatedly threatened and attacked by a fellow inmate. “She is not on a republican wing, she is with (ODC) the criminals and the majority of them hate republicans guts and they hate her. “There are some very dangerous people in there and to some of them she is IRA SCUM.”

More shocking revelations revealed on RUC/PSNI officers

RUC/PSNI officer had affair with associate of gang linked to Ronan Kerr’s murder

A POLICEWOMAN has been reprimanded but allowed to return to work after having an inappropriate sexual relationship with an associate of a criminal gang linked to PSNI officer Ronan Kerr’s murder.

The officer was suspended from duty some years ago after the affair emerged and the PSNI launched an investigation.

She was brought before an internal misconduct hearing last month where she was sanctioned, including having her pay docked.

However the policewoman is now free to return to operational duty.

It is understood the man whom the PSNI officer was romantically involved with is associated with members of a criminal gang linked to constable Ronan Kerr’s murder.

The 25-year-old Catholic PSNI officer was killed in April 2011 when a booby-trap bomb exploded under his car in Omagh.

No-one has ever been charged with his murder. Dissident republican paramilitaries have been blamed for the killing.

The criminal gang is suspected of involvement in the theft of cars for dissidents involved in the murder plot.

The misconduct proceedings against the policewoman were held around six weeks ago.

The PSNI had in 2014 sent a file in relation to the case to the Public Prosecution Service (PPS), but it decided not to pursue a prosecution.

A number of misconduct charges – two ‘integrity matters’ and two ‘professional duty matters’ – were upheld at the internal disciplinary.

On professional duty matters, the officer was found to have engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a person involved in and associated with criminality.

The policewoman was also reprimanded for failing to abide by property management procedures and retaining items of evidence at her home.

On integrity matters, the officer was found to have received information about persons of interest to police potentially breaching bail but failed notify colleagues. Another reprimand sanction was imposed.

The officer also breached police bail conditions placed on her, for which the hearing imposed a year-long pay reduction equating to more than £9,000.

The policewoman had initially been suspended while the PSNI carried out a criminal investigation, but she was later allowed to return to office-based work.

However, following the internal disciplinary, the PSNI has confirmed the officer has now returned to an operational role.

Police said the matter was never referred to the Police Ombudsman because it was “not the subject of a public complaint”.

The Irish News asked the PSNI why there were not more serious sanctions against the policewoman.

In a statement Chief Superintendent John McCaughan, head of PSNI’s professional standards department, said: “Following an investigation into the actions of a police officer by the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s professional standards department a file was prepared and sent to the Public Prosecution Service.

“They directed no prosecution in relation to all matters reported to them.

“The matter was not the subject of a public complaint, thus it was not referred to the Police Ombudsman.

“Following that, an officer appeared before misconduct proceedings in February 2018 to answer a number of charges.

“The charges were proven and the officer received a number of disciplinary sanctions as a result.

“As the misconduct proceedings have now finalised, the officer has returned to an operational role.

“The duty status of the officer was kept under review throughout the process.

“Decisions as to whether or not an officer required to be suspended from duty were guided by the Police (Conduct) Regulations 2000 in this particular case.

“This places an obligation upon the service to keep the duty status of an officer under continual review, to ensure that any decision is lawful, necessary and proportionate.

“An officer was initially suspended at the commencement of the investigation, and later returned to a non-public facing, outside the evidential chain until the misconduct proceedings finished.”

A PPS spokeswoman said: “The PPS received a file from the PSNI in February 2014 concerning a number of allegations against a serving police officer, including misconduct in public office and attempting to do an act with intent to pervert the course of justice.

“After careful consideration of all the available evidence in this case, it was concluded in September 2014 that the test for prosecution was not met on the grounds of insufficient evidence to provide a reasonable prospect of conviction.”

Joe Cahill’s deception of Irish America for MI5

Added here is Joe Cahill’s deception of Irish America for MI5

Posted by Chris Fogarty

Will the news media publish the contents of a very revealing, signed Sinn Fein report dated Nov. 2, 1988?

Irish-America generally believed veteran IRA-man Joe Cahill when he came to New York in late 1988 or 1989 to vouch for Gerry Adams’s character and leadership.

Many of us had doubts, but Joe Cahill carried much weight. He persuaded much of Irish-America into supporting Gerry Adam’s (actually MI5’s) “process” that would become total surrender of the disputed Six-Counties to Britain via the Good Friday Agreement (GFA). The GFA’s vaunted effect on violence is largely bogus, as political murders had peaked in 1972 (at 472) and had dropped to 69 by 1984, fourteen years prior to the 1998 GFA, and was continuing to drop.

Cahill distributed into a few collaborating hands his 103-page Report dated Nov. 2, 1988 and signed by him and Ted Howell. Some years later our alienated leader, Frank O’Neill,* under FBI Mole David Rupert’s control, gave me a copy. It was a coast-to-coast survey, ostensibly of the strengths and weaknesses of Irish-American support groups as observed by two Sinn Fein emissaries; Declan Kearney (son of then-respected Oliver Kearney) and Oistin McBride (brother of IRA volunteer Antoin McBride killed in 1986 by British soldiers). Declan and Ostin were accepted on the bases of those connections. While in Chicago they lodged with my wife and me.

Here are the facts known today: The violence had peaked in 1972 and had essentially ended (excepting mostly British violence) prior to the GFA; making the “violence” issue bogus, except by British forces, which Sinn Fein no longer reports or objects to. Framing and incarceration of suspected republicans continue as ever; so does internment without trial, as does abuse of prisoners; all acquiesced to by Sinn Fein. Most violative of all is the de facto immunization of the known and mostly named perpetrators of Bloody Sunday, Ballymurphy, Loughinisland, Dublin/Monaghan, McGurk’s Pub and Omagh atrocities. All were perpetrated by British forces; the latter a joint-venture atrocity arranged by MI5 and the FBI. These facts combine to shed new light onto the Cahill/Powell report. The report now reveals which groups in Irish-America were deemed by Cahill/Powell as their collaborators. These are presented favorably and extensively in the report. For example their report on Chicago is strongly positive about only one group; an FBI false-flag group impressively-named Drumm/Markievicz/Farrell branch of INA. It did enormous damage until “outed” and expelled by INA (not sure which occurred first).

A copy of the GFA was mailed to every household in Ireland prior to the Referendum in early 1998. I was present when it arrived to my father in Co. Roscommon. Curious; I read it and promptly described it in my newspaper column as “Sixty-seven pages of aspirational posturing, mutual contradictions, and bafflegab; none of it enforceable excepting a one-third page of declarative sentences uncontradicted elsewhere.” That enforceable part mandated the gutting of Articles 2 and 3 of Ireland’s Constitution that had laid permanent claim to the entire island and its territorial waters. It became the largest surrender of national territory in history absent catastrophic military defeat (and the IRA were not MILITARILY defeated (they were betrayed by their leadership). The GFA fulfilled its purpose; its enforceable part made Britain the victor of the 1968-1998 conflict. The rest of it served to conceal its true purpose and to give false hope. Though clearly fraudulent it was promoted by the Irish and Irish-American news media.

Framing and incarceration of suspected republicans continues as ever. So does internment without trial; and most violative of all; the de facto immunization of the known perpetrators of Bloody Sunday, Ballymurphy, Loughinisland, Dublin/Monaghan bombings, McGurk’s Pub and subsequent to the GFA, Omagh. All were perpetrated by British forces; the latter a joint-venture crime involving MI5 and the FBI and a RIRA bomb.
Copy/paste the below link into your URL. It is a 2014 report on how British Intelligence “flipped” Joe Cahill decades ago having caught him raping a 14-year-old girl. However, it is by reading the vicious purposes, the low-cunning so clearly evident in Cahill’s report that one can believe the newspaper report that he was also a pedophile. Cahill’s (and MI5’s) two accomplices, Kearney and McBride are now high-ranking Sinn Fein officials along with Gerry Adams.

*Frank O’Neill was our leader but split from our FOIF in 1995 when we persisted in voting down his demand that we buy and send guns to the IRA. We had defeated the second FBI frame-up of us in 1993 and the FBI (through Mole David Rupert) was trying to entrap us via too-trusting O’Neill. O’Neill learned that Rupert was working for MI5 and the FBI only in 2001,2 when the Crown had to “out” Rupert to use him as a “witness” in the framing of Michael McKevitt (Bobby Sands’ brother-in-law).

British spies recruited paedo IRA chief: Spooks used pictures of Joe Cahill to ‘turn him’

British authorities covered up the child sex abuse and used damning evidence to turn Cahill into one of the British Army’s most valuable informants, it has been claimed

Brothers in arms: Cahill with Sinn Féin’s Gerry Adams

The British authorities covered up a case of child sex abuse by a senior figure of the IRA in order to use the damning evidence to turn him into a double agent, military intelligence sources have said.

Joe Cahill, who helped found the Provisional IRA, was pictured abusing a 14-year-old girl in a car in the 1970s, the sources said.

But instead of being prosecuted, the images were used by military spooks to turn the Republican hero – and close ally of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams – into one of the British Army’s most valuable informants.

A source revealed that Cahill – who died in 2004 – was being followed by a covert unit as he drove around Belfast when the pictures were taken.

They apparently showed the paramilitary, then in his 50s, abusing a 14-year-old girl, who was later identified.

Joe Cahill cover up: Joe Cahill in 1971

The source said: “The pictures clearly identified both Cahill and his victim. Her father would have killed him if he had found out. He was never prosecuted and instead the pictures were used to turn him. He was a prized asset.”

The allegation is the latest paedophile scandal to hit the IRA and Sinn Fein.

Last week Cahill’s grand-niece, Mairia, revealed the IRA covered up the alleged abuse she suffered as a 16-year-old at the hands of another IRA figure. Mairia was not Cahill’s alleged victim in the 70s.

The Ministry of Defence did not comment on our story last night.

But a military source said: “This kind of thing has been unthinkable for many years now. There were some very questionable techniques deployed in the 1970s but they were put a stop to very soon afterwards.”

Several secretive military intelligence units operated in Northern Ireland at the time, including 14th Intelligence Company, also known as the Det, and several special collation teams.

Female operatives were said to have slept with IRA figures for information.

Cahill’s role as a key British agent was known to only a small handful of individuals. But a senior IRA source revealed that there was suspicion that he was a “tout” – slang for informer.

The IRA’s chief of staff was a priceless source of intelligence as the terror outfit stepped up its bombing campaign across Ireland and the mainland.

Denial: Gerry Adams

He was responsible for arming the paramilitaries with weapons and explosives from allies such as Libya and raising money from republican sympathisers.

A high-level agent like Cahill could be used to save lives and also to exert pressure on the IRA and Sinn Fein to join the peace process, which took place in the 90s.

In a separate case, Mairia Cahill last week waived her right to anonymity to speak out against alleged sexual abuse she suffered as a 16-year-old over a year in 1997 at the hands of another senior IRA figure.

Ms Cahill said she was raped and later interrogated by the IRA about her claims. She later went to the police and a case was brought against the alleged rapist and those said to have been involved in the IRA inquiry.

The man she accused, Martin Morris, has consistently denied her claims and was acquitted of all charges, which were dropped after Ms Cahill withdrew her evidence.

She said: “The only word I have for it is interrogation, because that’s exactly how it felt. They told me that they were going to read my body language to see who was telling the truth and that they were going to bring him into a room.”

Fiona Woolf

Fiona Woolf, who is leading an inquiry into alleged abuse by MPs, is expected to be asked to widen her remit
Gerry Adams has denied telling Mairia that sometimes abuse victims “actually enjoy it”.

Last year he came under fire after his brother Liam was jailed for sexually abusing his own daughter.

The 59-year-old is currently serving a 16-year prison sentence for raping and abusing Aine Dahlstrom when she was aged between four and nine in the late 70s and early 80s.

During a first trial which collapsed, Mr Adams told the court he confronted his brother about the allegations in 1987 and Liam denied the abuse.

He then revealed his brother later confessed to him in 2000.

Liam’s conviction led to pressure on his brother to explain why he did not contact police over the abuse allegations when he first learnt of them.

Gerry Adams told the first trial in April last year, that he warned a priest, who is now dead, about his brother’s sinister past and the pair became estranged after the allegations emerged.

Recent allegations of historical child abuse against political figures has forced the British Government to set up an official inquiry.

No surprise: Labour MP Simon Danczuk

Chairwoman Fiona Woolf is expected to examine abuse by MPs, in care homes and schools, and is now facing calls to expand her investigation to cover the role of the intelligence services.

Labour MP Tom Watson said: “There have been rumours that the intelligence services had knowledge of child abuse for a number of years.

“That is why it’s essential that the inquiry is given full access to intelligence service files on this subject.”

Labour MP Simon Danczuk, who exposed the truth about paedophile Liberal MP Cyril Smith, said: “The exploitation of children by the secret services and members of the establishment comes as no surprise.

“We are discovering a history of poor children being treated like disposable goods by people in high places and no one batted an eyelid.”

When approached about our story regarding Joe Cahill, a Sinn Fein spokesperson said: “This is contemptible. It is gutter journalism of the worst kind”.

Off-duty police officer arrested over fatal Omagh crash – The Irish News

The aftermath of the road collision on Dromore Road in Omagh, Co Tyrone, in which 49-year-old Paul Mills was killed.

Female inmate ‘forcibly strip searched’

BRITAIN STILL ABUSES IRISH REPUBLICAN WOMENSecond woman missed hospital appointment after refusing to remove clothes campaigners say.

REPUBLICAN prisoner campaigners have claimed a forced strip has been

out on a female republican inmate at Hydebank Wood Prison.


Sharon Rafferty, of Cavana Linn in Pomeroy, was forced to remove her clothes before and after making a court appearance in Omagh, Co Tyrone, last month. Supporters say the 38-year-old refused to take off her cloths voluntarily female prison officers forcibly removed them down to her underwear. Ms Rafferty is facing charges relating to republician paramilitary activity in Co Tryone. Since her arrest in May last she has been detained on a separated wing at Hydebank Wood Prison on the outskirts of Belfast. It has also emerged that a second republican prisoner, Christine Connor, missed a hospital appointment last month after refusing to be strip searched. The 27-year-old is facing two counts of attempted murder and possession of pipe bombs in relation to an attack on the PSNI in North Belfast in May. The Irish News understand both wimen have indicated they will not voluntarialy submit to strip searches in furture.

On Wednsday night Mandy Duffy from the Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association (IRPWA) sais Ms Rafferty felt like she had been “sexually assaulted” after the search. “She feels very strongly she should not have to remove her clothing,” she aid. The prisoner campagner says Ms Connor will also continue to resist strip searches. “Christine feels she is being denied the right to medicial treatment which is a basic human right,” she said. “She is on medication and needs to see a specialist.” The last high-profile female republican prisoner to be subjected to strip searches is believed to be Roisin McAliskey – daughter of former Mid Ulster MP Bernadette McAliskey – who was searched more than 70 times while pregnant in custody awaiting extradition to Germany in connection with an IRA mortar attàck in 1996. She was released wîthout charge in 1998.


In November last year male republican prisoners in Maghaberry Prison ended an 18-month no-wash protest sparked by a number of complaints about the jail regime, including the use of strip searches. A spokesman for the Department of Justice (DOJ) said: “The Prison Service Full Search Policy for women prisoners has developed a two stage full search procedure. A stage one search requires the woman to remove her outer clothin; however she would not be requied to remove her underwear. If staff have suspicions or intelligence has been received to suggest that the woman could be concealing items in her underwear she would be required to proceed to a level two search. “This would require her to remove the clothing from her top half of her body, including her underwear. When dressed she would remove the clothing from the bottom half of her body, including her underwear. While we cannot comment on specific individuals, at no stage has a level two search been deployed in Ash House in recent weeks as is being claimed in some quarters.”

Man caught with loaded handgun shouted “tiocfaidh ar la”, judge told.

A MAN allegedly caught with a loaded handgun shouted out “tiocfaidh at LA” as police put him in their car, a judge has heard.


Belfast Crown Court also heard that when officers stopped the Ford Fiesta car being driven by 29-year-old Mark McGuigan close to a forest outside Omagh, he had to be pulled from the car and struggled throughout. Ciaran Murphy QC, prosecuting, told Judge Corinne Philpott QC, sitting without a jury, that having been restrained and put into a protective forensic suit, Mr McGuigan yelled out the republican mantra ‘our day will come’ as officers put him into a waiting police car. Inside the Ford Fiesta, officer uncovered two socks with one containing a loaded revolver and the other 33 assorted bullets. Mr McGuigan, from Sperrin View in OOmagh, denies possecessing the gun and ammunition with intent to endanger life under suspicious circumstances. Mr Murphy told the court the gun had been deactivated in 2003 but had been reactivated to fire live bullets. He added that the firing pin in the revolver was not long enough, although a small adjustment would have been enough to allow the gun to fire. Three other men who were also in the car, including two men who were hiding under a sleeping bag in the folded down rear seats, have already pleaded guilty and are awaiting sentence. The trial continues.

DISTRICT Judge Bernie Kelly sent shockwaves through the PSNI/RUC when she halted a criminal trial, dismissed all the charges and lectured the cops involved.


She severely criticised the officers involved in the incidendent which led to Anthony Kirk and his wife Shona being chargrd with a string of offences and nursing serious injuries. The Court was told the Police officers, including Sergeant Boyle of Omagh PSNI, approached Mr Kirk and the Sergeant advised the court that he wished to speak to Mr Kirk reference his behaviour likely to cause Breach of the Peace. Evidence was given by Sergeant Boyle that he approached the door of Mr Kirks property to speak to Mr Kirk, Mr Kirk attempted to slam the door closed but Sergeant Boyle was able to effect entry into the property. During the course of cross examination of Sergeant Boyle by Mr Joe McCann Barrister, instructed by Michael Fahy of Patrick Fahy & Company Solicitors, Sergeant Boyle was compelled to concede that there was no lawful basis for him being on Mr Kirks’ property.


Sergeant Boyle conceded that an offence of behaviour likely to cause Breach of the Peace or Disorderly Behaviour did not justify Police entering on to a person’s property without there being expressed permission to do so. Upon the conclusion of Sergeant Boyles’ evidence, the District Judge Mrs Kelly directed that all Police Officers who had previously been excluded from the Court, would enter the Court and listen carefully and take a concise note of her decision with regard to the subject matter. It was the conclusion of the District Judge that Sergeant Boyle and his fellow officers did not have legal authority to enter the Kirk’s property and therefore did not have any legal powers to do so. The Judge then made reference to the serious injuries sustained by both Mr and Mrs Kirk during the efforts by police to arrest them. She stated that the behaviour of Police in this particular incidence was very serious indeed in the absence of their lawful authority to enter on to the before mentioned property. The Judge went on to state that in her conclusion it was no doubt that Mr Kirk was met with serious violence to his person. As there was no legal authority to enter the property, the Judge concluded that the officers did not act in the due execution of the legal duty regarding their actions as, in her words, a serious violation of the person and person’s property rights. All charges were ultimately dismissed against both Defendants.
