AN ALLEGED dissident gunman who was arrested following the murder of RIRA chief Peter Butterly is the current manager of Shamrock Rovers U-18s team. Eddie McGrath (31), was one of five men arrested in the car park of the Huntsman Inn, Gormanstown, Co. Meath, minutes after Butterly was gunned down.

Yesterday, dad-of-three Butterly - a former RIRA leader in Louth - was buried in a low-key ceremony without any paramilitary trappings. Butterly had recently been expelled from the dissident organisation by the Northern-based leadership for allegedly pocketing RIRA funds.
