Mary Travers' murderer shows 'no remorse'


Ann Travers has told a Stormont committee she has suffered constant flashbacks after Sinn Fein appointed a woman convicted of her sister's murder as a special adviser to one of its ministers.

Mary McArdle's appointment as special adviser to Culture Minister Caral Ni Chuillin sparked controversy in 2011.

It later emerged Ms McArdle had been convicted for her part in the murder of Mary Travers in 1984.

She left the post earlier this year.
