Craigavon 2 Committee appoint Packy Carty as Chairperson


Today the JFTC2 group met and made a number of appointments, most notable was the election of Packy Carty as Chairperson.

“It is an honour to chair this campaign, the work of Tony Catney, Angela Nelson and Gerry Conlon will be hard to follow.

I am completely committed to seeing the campaign for justice for Brendan and John Paul through to a successful conclusion, Being a close friend of both men I am absolutely determined to see this injustice come to an end. I believe everyone who has read the case material sees the obvious miscarriage of justice that has taken place.

The recent Supreme Court decision has not dampened our resolve as a group to continue to fight for justice to be done and be seen to be done.

I call on everyone to help us intensify the justice campaign.”


Appeal application rejected


The court  rejected an application to hear an appeal over the sentencing of two men for murdering a policeman.
Brendan McConville and John Paul Wootton were convicted of murdering Stephen Carroll in Craigavon in 2009.
In this case the judges said they were refusing permission to appeal “because the application does not raise an arguable point of law of general public importance which ought to be considered by the Supreme Court at this time, bearing in mind that the case has already been the subject of judicial decision and reviewed on appeal”.
Both men are currently serving life sentences for murdering Constable Carroll, who was the first member of the Police Service of Northern Ireland to be killed.
The Court of Appeal increased Wootton’s minimum jail term from 14 to 18 years last October after ruling it was unduly lenient.
McConville is serving at least a 25-year-sentence for the murder.
Both men lost their appeals against their convictions in May 2014. The Supreme Court’s decision means that the Court of Appeal’s ruling stands.

In the name of Gerry Conlon


Gerry and TC pictured at the Craigavon Two appeal, both men passed away shortly after one another due to the same illness, a massive loss to all that knew and loved them and to the JFTC2 campaign which continues the work they began.

A great reminder of what can happen with a discriminatory justice. A strong document about a man who left us too soon. A powerful and necessary documentary

Thank you

Justice for the Craigavon Two

The Justice for the Craigavon Two single did not make it into the UK Official Top 40 Chart, streaming, which was included in how the charts count ‘sales’ was added in August has changed the dynamic some what and makes it harder for small independent artists and campaigns to replicate the success of the Celtic supporters and Roll of Honour.

However JFTC2 by Pol Mac Adaim spent five days in the UK top 100 most downloaded singles on Amazon, it peaked at 36 on Tuesday, it also weighed in at second on the Amazon Indy artist charts, was #21 beside Ed Sheeran on the iTunes singer songwriter chart and peaked in the 50s on the UK Google Play Chart.

We launched this single to raise publicity and public awareness of the miscarriage of justice of Brendan McConville and John Paul Wootton, we believe firmly that the song campaign has achieved that, as multiple newspapers, radio and internet news outlets covered the story. More people than ever have been made aware of the case with over 80 thousand views of our facebook page this week alone.

On twitter politicians like George Galloway MP and Mick Wallace promoted the song, actors such as Love Hate’s John Francis Connors took an interest and retweeted our material.

The response in Ireland, Scotland, England,Canada, USA and Australia has been phenomenal a multitude of different groupings, individuals and organisations helped spread the word both online and on the streets engaging in acts of solidarity that ranged from handing out leaflets at St Patrick’s day parades to forcefully shutting the British Embassy in Toronto.

To everyone who has helped this week we the JFTC2 campaign extend our eternal gratitude and Brendan and JP have asked that we extend their sincerest thanks to you all.

The song campaign has been a success but the miscarriage of justice of the Craigavon Two continues, we hope to have your continued support as we continue the fight for Justice for the Craigavon Two.
