Garda McCabe’s widow again calls on SF to condemn killing

The widow of Detective Garda Jerry McCabe (pictured) is again calling on Sinn Féin to condemn her husband's killing.

Anne McCabe has made the appeal in response to the Sinn Féin Chairwoman of Kerry County Council's failure to condemn the 1996 killing during a botched IRA robbery.

Toireasa Ferris is a daughter of convicted gun-runner and current TD for North Kerry, Martin Ferris.

Speaking on Radio Kerry, Mrs McCabe said: “It won’t bring Jerry back but at least they should have the decency to speak up, and speak the truth, but then again you don’t get the truth from them”.
