Clarification: Padraig O'Gorman

The Irish Independent newspaper would like to correct inaccuracies in its article "Proposing a memorial for IRA terrorists is grotesque" by Mr Kevin Myers on Tuesday 2nd February last in which it stated and implied that a proposal from Coiste Cairde na Laochra to Enniscorthy Town Council to erect a granite stone memorial to honour five IRA men who died in Edentubber in 1957, was the "apparent wishes of the town clerk", Mr Padraig O’Gorman.

This newspaper accepts that Mr O’Gorman was correctly performing his official duties of town clerk in presenting the proposal to remember the period of Irish history from 1956-1962 from Coiste Cairde na Laochra addressed to the Chairman and Members of Enniscorthy Town Council for consideration, and that he had no other wishes or agenda whatsoever in relation to the matter.

The Irish Independent would like to apologise to Mr Padraig O’Gorman for any inconvenience or offence caused by the inaccuracy of this article.
