Text of Irish Republican Army (IRA) Statement on the Killing of Eoin Morley on 15 April 1990, in Newry, (5 April 2007)
"Following meetings with the mother of Eoin Morley the leadership of the IRA has conducted an in-depth inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the death of Eoin Morley.
Eoin Morley was shot and killed in Newry on 15 April 1990. No order was issued for the killing of Eoin Morley. At the time allegations were made that he was an informer. In the course of a lengthy interview in An Phoblacht in November 1992 the IRA leadership described those allegations as, "incorrect and totally inaccurate".
The killing of Eoin Morley was wrong. The IRA leadership offers its apologies to the Morley family for the grief and pain they have suffered as a result of our actions and the subsequent false allegations levelled against Eoin Morley."
The statement from the IRA was released through 'An Phoblacht' on 5 April 2007
