Just for the record it is five years, this month, since I first made contact with a detective from the Cold Case Unit.
I was informed in Sept 2009 that Niall’s case “was not currently under review”
It was only in Feb 2010 when I informed the Unit, by email, that I had meetings with Garda Ombudsman’s Office that things started to happen. Within Hours of sending my email I was contacted by phone by a senior member of the Cold Case unit to arrange a meeting for the following Friday.

STILL WAITING FOR ANSWERS
