NI Appeals court explains reason for calling Daly retrial

The court of appeal in Belfast has ruled that a judge who found a County Monaghan man liable for the Omagh bombing did not clarify what weight was put on his later conviction for Real IRA membership.

Senior judges have set out their reasons for directing a retrial in the case of Seamus Daly, one of the men sued over the atrocity.

They also identified an error in the handling of evidence against him.

40 year old Daly was one of four men found legally liable for the bombing in June 2009, following a landmark civil action taken by relatives of some victims.
