A wreath is being laid on the site where the 52-year-old was shot dead during a raid on the post office in Adare on the 7th of June 1996.

The father of five from Ballylongford was killed four months after the breakdown of the first IRA ceasefire.

Four members of the terrorist organisation were convicted of Gerry McCabe’s manslaughter, however his widow Ann has called his death ‘plain murder’.
