    Prominent barrister Creaney dies

    One of Northern Ireland's leading lawyers has died following a long battle with leukaemia.

    Business at Belfast Crown Court was adjourned for a time on Wednesday after the death of John Creaney QC, OBE, at his home in Cultra was announced.

    The Recorder of Belfast, His Honour Tom Burgess, said Mr Creaney "served the cause of justice with great integrity".

    Mr Creaney, first called to the Bar in 1957, had been a prosecutor during the 'supergrass' trials of the Troubles.

    I imagine that was pretty much what the killers of Rosemary Nelson and Pat Finucane said at the time, are you a sympathiser by any chance?

    nelson and finucane both did their best to stop innocent people being wrongly convicted by creaney and his cronies. the killers of both were brothers in arms with creaney, billy wright, airey neave and the rest of the british establishment

    barristers represent who they are asked to, irrespective of personal beliefs.

    Anyway, I agree with roc that this has little to do with p.ie
