Day 2.  25th July 1986



Wedding guests not interviewed

Garda documents record that “There is no documentary evidence to show that the guests who attended the wedding  in July 1985 were canvassed or interviewed”

Gardai neither sought or were given a list of the people present during the wedding celebrations.

Did they even request to see the Wedding Video or would that have been too much to expect from the Gardai  ?
