Mr Brian Meehan – Apology
An article in the Evening Herald City Edition of Monday, 12 May 2014, headlined “Veronica’s killer is quizzed over gun attacks on Gilligan” was accompanied by a picture captioned “Killer: Brian Meehan”.
In fact, the man pictured is not the Brian Meehan who is serving a life sentence for the murder of Veronica Guerin but is a different Brian Meehan altogether who has absolutely no involvement in crime and who is entirely innocent of such matters.
He has no association of any nature with the convicted murderer, Brian Meehan; nor does he have any association of any description with the matters which were referred to in our article.
We unreservedly apologise for this production error and for the distress and embarrassment caused as a result of this publication.
