Sheila Murray speaks on ‘hate campaign’

The mother of the two Limerick children burned in an arson attack last year has once again defended herself against allegations that she smuggled drugs into Limerick prison saying she is the evicted of a “hate campaign”

Speaking to the Sunday World today Mrs Murray said

“They can believe what they want to believe. I never had anything to do with drugs. I didn’t do anything in the jail. That’s what’s driving me mad. I was tried [by the media] and put on the front page of the papers.”

The whohaa is believed to have stemmed from this article in the Irish Independent.

Sheila has said however that the person she went to see in prison was found with hash afterwards but insists that he had the drugs on him before she met him.

“They could not have me on security cameras passing drugs because there were no drugs. I am being tried by the media and being found guilty.”

A lot more on this in today’s Sunday World.

Four-year-old Gavin Murray and his sister, Millie, six, suffered severe burns when a car they were sitting in was set on fire. The teenagers charged in connection with the attack are due to appear before Ennis Circuit Court this week.

They are charged with intentionally or recklessly causing serious harm to the two kids at Pineview Gardens on September 10th.
