Quotes

The barrister said neither of the two injured men had identified McMahon as their attacker, and that "the only direct evidence against him was his own admissions" , whilst pointing out his client was deemed unfit for interview until the day after his arrest
He had told police: "I'm sorry if I entered the building. I don't remember - I was so drunk."
The barrister also revealed that Brown met co-accused McMurray when they were both living in a hostel, adding the pair "may have only known each other for a few days before this incident occurred."
On receiving an apology, Mr Rafferty allowed him to go with the words: "I would have thought if you're attending in support of your son that would extend to not wanting to end up in the cells with him."
