McMonagle 'furious' over murder allegation

LETTERKENNY’S Mayor and town councillor Gerry McMonagle of Sinn Fein has declined to comment on accusations made under parliamentary privilege in Westminster that he carried out a murder in 1982.

The DUP MP for Strangford, Jim Shannon used parliamentary privilege yesterday (Wednesday), to name Cllr McMonagle as the man he believes was responsible for the murder of part-time UDR member, Hugh ‘Lexie’ Cummings from Artigarvan.

MP Shannon asked why William Gerard McMonagle, who is now the Mayor of Letterkenny, did not stand trial.
