As Beeko said it's more Mick Clifford as he has been the main journalist to stick with this.
Much too long to go into in detail but it's extremely disturbing what happened in this case. A flavour:
A guard McCabe complained about is the father of the girl in the sexual offence allegation. DPP says what was alleged isn't even an offence, nor did it happen
His main problem was poor police work, in one case leading indirectly to a murder. In turn these shortcoming/ gross incompetencies were laid at his door. Totally unfounded. Called a rat, by guards. This guy was gven awards for his work before all this.
A counter argument offered against McCabe by his superiors was that he bore a grudge, and admitted so to two senior guards at a meeting in Mullingar. When he produced a recording of this meeting they withdrew the claim. This was omitted from the initial judge's inquiry report.
His four grown children were brought into the sexual allegations thing, files were opened on each. As Clifford said, you can't copy and paste from handwritten reports.
There's more. Worth listening to it if you can or listen back to the RTE report from last week, possibly Wednesday evening. It's staggering.
Of course the circus has now moved on to FG's bullshit. Homeless problem, A&E crisis, this - a new outrage then we move on. This place is a basket case.
