Yet they had you promote a false claim. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : That is your opinion. I am not usually used! In this case I was being advised by Home Affairs Secretariat and deputising for unavailable Minister. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : Home Affairs Secretariat would have advised information on basis of facts available to it at that particular time. Facts can change!! Question is origin of false claim. Prime Minister was responsible for security etc.
Yet you are unable to explain its origin. What were their roles? Department Secretary General or Under Secretary.
Or specific advisers? John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : Cannot recall. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : Sorry cannot recall the individuals. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : Not a villain but one who honourably accepted advice. Only you can trace it back to actual source. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : I can only claim to have acted on advice and therefore honourably. Regrettably I was unable to remain in post to articulate any new facts. As a senior figure in Home Affairs you bear responsibility unless you have proof you were misled.
John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : I acted on advice given to me. I had no reason to believe that I was being misled and, since I have never been involved since, I do not. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : At the time they were the best advice available to me and not false.
John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : I was not briefed by army nor police. Only by Department. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : Yes that is correct. When did you first hear the truth? John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : What you call the truth is different for me.
I was only briefly involved in subject and truth was what I was advised in that short period. Before the murder attempt on you or much later? John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : I do not recall hearing that. At no point did you feel you needed to revisit the advice given to you? John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : No. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : No recollection. John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : Sorry.
McGurk's Bar bombing victims in court bid
No recollection. You said you would only have spoken to press after being briefed. You first advanced the IRA theory on 5th Dec.

John Taylor Lord Kilclooney : No idea. Had you been briefed to say this?
To this I added the same text from the Irish Independent on 6th December that I had added earlier:. He initially insisted that he only spoke when briefed by the Department meaning Home Affairs. When first challenged over his statement on 5th December he states that information on the bomb changed over time, by then he was no longer in a ministerial position.
The British government, military and RUC police immediately blamed the bombing on an Irish Republican own-goal even though the full weight of evidence, including a witness who saw the bomb being planted, proved it was a terrorist attack. As the families prepared to bury their loved ones, the British state buried the truth.
Since then the families have fought tirelessly and constitutionally to clear the names of their loved ones — for their only crime was their faith. He now supports other families as they fight for truth and justice via the charity, Paper Trail. MacAirt the truths behind this particular tragedy have been resurrected. Read the review…. It is a paper trail that goes to the highest levels of the Government, police and military and proves that society today must learn from the lessons of history.

Sort order. May 06, Cieran Hughes rated it it was amazing. This is how "Britain" conduct's itself. View 1 comment. Oct 09, Thomas Kanyak added it Shelves: troubles. Ostensibly about the campaign for truth to discover the perpetrators and reveal collusion of Britsh Government in the McGurks bar bombing in northern ireland in , but its most important contribution is shining a light on the origins of Britains dirty war of 'psychops' in the early years of the conflict in NI.
