Omagh accused hires Michael Finucane as new solicitor


11/01/2006 - 13:23:51

The Co Louth man awaiting retrial on charges connected to the Omagh bombing has hired new legal representation in the form of Belfast solicitor Michael Finucane.

The development was revealed as 53-year-old Colm Murphy made a routine appearance before the non-jury Special Criminal Court today.

Mr Finucane's father Pat, who was also a solicitor, was shot dead by loyalist paramilitaries at his Belfast home in 1989.

Mr Murphy is currently facing a retrial after his conviction for allowing his phones to be used by the Omagh bombers was quashed last January.
