Mother-of-three admits guilt on terror charges



A mother of three from Pomeroy yesterday admitted three charges linked to a dissident training camp set up in a Co Tyrone forest.

Sharon Rafferty is the last of four defendants to plead to offences arising from the discovery of a firing range at Formil Wood between Greencastle and Broughdery in March 2012. The prosecution believe the training camp was in an advanced state of preparation for an attack by dissident republicans.

Rafferty, from Cabhan Aluinn in Pomeroy, initially denied a string of charges levelled against her. However, at Belfast Crown Court yesterday, her defence barrister asked that she be rearraigned on two of the charges she faced.
