Mr Martin Kelly -- correction and apology

A STORY in yesterday's Irish Independent under the headline 'Man gets life for driving dissident gang's victim to church execution' was incorrectly accompanied by a picture captioned "Martin Kelly drove Andrew Burns to the car park in Donegal where Mr Burns was shot dead".

The story referred to the sentencing of Mr Martin Kelly, Barack Street, Strabane, Co Tyrone, to life in prison for the murder of Mr Burns. The picture erroneously used was in fact that of a different Mr Martin Kelly with an address in Dublin who had no involvement with the incident. We apologise to Mr Kelly for this error and are happy to correct the record.
