Gilligan Free

Crime boss John Gilligan has been released from prison. Suspected by Gardai of having ordered the murder of journalist Veronica Guerin, he was later acquitted. However he was convicted for involvement in the drugs trade and went on to spend a total of 17 years behind bars.

Gilligan arrived in Clondalkin, West Dublin, having being sped away from Portlaoise Prison. There, enjoying a beer, he maintained his innnocence and accused journalists of having blamed an innocent man.
