Where is the missing suspect sketch in the Charles Self murder case?

charlesselflrge-752x501 Charles Self

It’s been a week now since I contacted Gardai to ask for a response to allegations that the only sketch of a suspect in the brutal, unsolved murder of RTE set designer Charles Self has ‘went missing’ from detective files.

I was told by the press office that my query had been passed to the investigating officers and I would receive a response in ‘due course’.

I don’t know exactly what time frame ‘due course’ is in the books of An Garda Siochana, but given that it is coming up to the 35th anniversary of Charles’ horrific killing (which no one has even been arrested for) and the continued distress those close to him still feel at not only his loss but also the subsequent failure to find his killer, you’d think the gards would be keen to address such a serious claim quickly.

Hopefully this week I’ll be…

‘Inner City Action’ from Devoid Media (May 1982)


Come Here To Me!

These scans are from Devoid Media (No.1 Vol.1), a publication that came out of Trinity College Dublin in the early 1980s. The first issue of the mag included an interview with Larry from The Blades, which has already found its way online thanks to The Blades Fan Group on Facebook.

As well as plenty of coverage of the bands of the day, such as The Low, The Atrix and The Blades, the mag included an interesting little feature on the North City Centre Community Action Programme (NCCCAP), which was more popularly known as the ‘N- treble C-A-P’. They were receiving quite a lot of attention at the time, as local activist and TD Tony Gregory had just achieved the famous ‘Gregory Deal’ from Charles Haughey, which promised very significant investment in the north inner-city, an area that successive governments had totally ignored.

Rome: Vatican Recalls Its Ambassador To Ireland Over Cover-Up Of Clerical Child Sex Abuse: UPDATED


ARCHIVE: Citizens Free Press Ireland.com

LATEST NEWS UPDATE:

(Reuters) – The Vatican has recalled its ambassador in Ireland after Dublin criticised the Church’s role in covering up child sex abuse.

The Irish parliament last week passed a motion deploring the Vatican for “undermining child protection frameworks” in the country.

The criticism followed a damning report on the handling of sex abuse reports in the diocese of Cloyne in county Cork. Ireland has published a series of reports on allegations of child abuse by priests and members of religious orders. Here are some details of their findings:

* OCTOBER 2005:

— An inquiry was set up following the resignation in 2002 of the Bishop of Ferns, Brendan Comiskey, when it emerged he had been aware of the activities of an abusive priest in the diocese, but failed to protect the victims. The priest, Father Sean Fortune, committed suicide in 1999 after he was charged with…

The Archbishop of Dublin Dr Diarmuid Martin has admitted that “a cabal” 

(A Tightly Knit Group) protecting clerical sex abusers may be operating at the highest levels in the Catholic Church.

Dr Martin said: “There may be a cabal in Cloyne. They may have friends in other parts of the Irish Church. They may have friends in Irish society. There may be friends in the Vatican.”

Asked yesterday who was preventing the protection of children, he said: “The numbers that are involved in this are few. The damage that these people cause is horrendous. It’s for all of us to see where they are, but in the…
