Who Bombed Omagh
Description:
Reporter John Ware names gang behind the 1998 Omagh Bomb and asks why they have not been charged. Begins with a voice-over by John Ware describing Omagh on Saturday 15 August 1999 and showing a reconstruction of the bombers parking their car. Then as voice over recites the causality figures, a real film clip is shown of the horrific aftermath, and Blair saying these people will never win, democracy will triumph over evil. Then B. Ahern says we will defeat them, but two years on no one is convicted. Ronnie Flanagan (RUC Chief Constable) comments, he has intelligence on bombers not evidence. This absence of prosecutions is a further burden on the victim's relatives, Bernie Doherty comments. Then John Ware asks himself what is the evidence against the bombers, and proceeds to highlight the intelligence known, he begins with the stealing of the red Vauxhall in Carrickmacross, then in South Armagh it was loaded with a bomb. J. Ware explains the list of people involved and their skills. The Garda say the car thief stole the car and contacted an intermediary, telephone records prove the intermediary made three calls to a builder in Culloville, he's named as Seamus Daly (30), film clip shown. Garda have arrested him but he's been released. On the morning of Omagh, the bomb car travelled North with scout care ahead of it. Meanwhile in Buncrana, a young boy was pleading with his mother to let him go to Omagh with friends, he was Oran Doherty (8), his mother recalls the events. The RUC believe the bombers communicated by mobile phone as they drove the cars to Omagh. This comes from an analysis of calls made in that area at that time. John Ware explains how the technology works, there are two mobile phones whose calls that day are of special interest, one of the phones belonged to Colin Murphy, profile and film clip shown. The other phone belonged to Murphy's works foreman. Murphy told Garda he was in his own 'Emerald Bar' before Omagh when he lent his mobiles to another builder called Seamus Daly, Murphy implied he had no option. Then John Ware camera crew then confronts Colin Murphy, and asks why he gave his phones to Daly. He denies doing that as he drives off. Back to the bomb run reconstruction, it's 12.41 p.m., the first call is made on phone used by Daly. At 1.13 p.m. a second call, these were from the scout car to the bomb car. Then an interview with Michael Gallagher, hears him comment on his son's , Adrian (21), trip into Omagh that day. At 1.29 p.m. another call was made from scout car to bomb car, by 2.00 p.m. the mobile was in the Omagh area, because at 1.57 p.m. another call was made, then the mother of Alan Radford (16) recalls going into Town together every Saturday. She narrates the sequence of events. At 2.18 p.m. CCTV films the Vauxhall passing a petrol station, a minute later another phone call between the cars as it parked at 2.19 p.m. and then armed. The whole team then left the scout car, then Elizabeth Gibson recalls her sister Ester (36) and the events that morning in their house. As the bombers drove through South Armagh a phone box was used to send a bomb warning to UTV, reconstruction shown, two other warnings phone in, all used the codeword 'Martha Pope', John Ware asks who made the warning calls, phone boxes removed by forensics, but drew a blank. However the bombers phone texted the phone of Oliver Trainor, he's filmed covertly, he told Garda his phone was stolen, but it's odd another of his mobiles phoned his missing mobile twice, and on 30 April 1998, fifty calls were made from his mobiles at the time of Lisburn and Newry bomb attacks. Trainor is supposedly linked to the Thirty Two County Sovereignty Committee. A film clip then shows Frankie Mackey (Councillor) speaking at a meeting. Ware secretly films members including Liam Campbell (O.C. of the RIRA). Ware goes to his house no answer. Then Oliver Trainor closes shop, to avoid Ware who shouts out his mobile phone questions, Liam Campbell was also inside the shop, then Ken Skelton profiles his wife Mena (39). On 15 August 1998 the last mobile call made was at Ballygawley at 2.38 p.m. heading south to the border, it was made to mobile believed to be held by Liam Campbell, then an actual recording is played of the RUC men beginning the street clearance after the waning. The contradictions in the warnings are highlighted, then Kevin Skelton recalls the RUC moving them and others unknowingly towards the bomb car. Still photo of bomb car shown, at 3.00 p.m. Oran Doherty was having his lunch with his friends, his mother recalls, then actual RUC recording of bomb exploding, and video tape of chaos shown, Mrs Radford recalls glass in her head, Kevin Skelton tells of finding his wife and his daughter. Sam Potter (Army Doctor, Captain) describes the bloody scene he saw, with more tape shown, he recalls finding dead mother and child he's haunted by their faces, twenty nine killed mostly women. Ware comments on causality list, Mrs Radford recalls again, then Michael Gallagher comments on visiting Tyrone Hospital and what he saw there, then Elizabeth Gibson's recollections, at 3.30 p.m. the phone linked to Seamus Daly phoned a businessman, that man told Garda the caller was S. Daly, but he won't give evidence in Court. Back to Mrs Radford's search for her son Alan, with film of people at the hospital searching through lists of names, then M Gallagher takes up the story of searching. That night in Dundalk's 'Emerald Bar' some of the bombers gathered, S. Daly approached Colin Murphy's foreman of whom he had taken the phone and made light of the atrocity in Omagh, telling the foreman "you drove the Yoke to Omagh", the foreman won't give evidence in court, again John Ware tried to confront Daly at his farm house but got no response to his shouts, nor his phone calls. Ware say fifteen men are suspected of involvement but without witnesses giving evidence, the intense police case is stalled. Ronnie Flanagan (RUC Chief Constable) gives his view on this matter, then Mrs Radford talks about getting her son's body back, followed by Michael Gallagher about his son Adrian, then Bernie Doherty recalls Oran's facial expression. Then Kevin Skelton on losing his wife, then John Ware appeals to bombers consciences. (Wednesday)

Then in the studio live, J. Donaldson (UUP MP) and Alan McFarland (UUP MLA) debate the issues, Donaldson is asked firstly why doesn't he mount a leadership issue, he avoids the question of personalities and lists the issues he believes are important, no guns no government is the UUP election pledge, he says he wants that policy reinstated, and hopes to persuade the UUC of that. Then Alan McFarland highlights the fact the party always backed Trimble through twenty one different votes, not at decommissioning, feedback executive canít be sustained and Trimble has walked before, McFarland wants Republican action now and that is problem largely for the two governments.

He says in May the IRA made commitments which it has kept. Maskey comments on lack of demilitarisation and police reform as yet. The next problem between the parties discussed is police reform. G. Adams (SF) outlines his position saying Blair has to get right or lose the possibility of civic policing. Then Trimble outlines the situation as he sees it, in the undermining of Unionist confidence in the GFA. Next in the studio A. Magennis (SDLP) and William McCrea (DUP) discuss the Pattten reforms, Patten imposed, then William McCrea outlines his objections to Patten, which is implementation of the Republican agenda as he sees it, both men argue back and forth.

Then Bill Jeffrey comments on the mass exodus out of Northern Ireland every twelfth with more violence film clips, Joanne Murphy, Roman Catholic tells of her feeling about the twelve weeks, and how it makes her feel.

R. Flanagan (RUC Chief Constable) puts his point of view, then Denis Watson deflects this question, when put to him and David Jones of Portadown blames the ??? Then David Moxtin (Orangeman) from Lurgan who did protest shows report around his local lodge and defends the Orange position. The Reverend John Dunlop gives his views on balancing the rights of Orangemen and residents, but he points out wider societies rights shouldn't also suffer.
