The family of Harry Gleeson have called for his body to be returned to Co Tipperary for burial. 

Harry was executed in 1941 for the murder in Co Tipperary of Moll McCarthy who he found shot dead the year previously. However, for nearly three-quarters of a century, there was widespread speculation about the conviction and last Friday following a review of the case and input from the Justice for Harry Gleeson Group, it was found that crucial information had been witheld and significant discrepencies were also identified in the case.

The Justice Minister will now recommend that the president grant the first posthumous pardon in the history of the State to the late Mr Gleeson.

Speaking to Tipperary Mid West Radio afterwards Mr Gleeson's grandnephew Anthony Moloney said that his family now wants to have Mr Gleeson's remains removed from Mountjoy and returned to Holycross where he can finally be laid to rest beside some of his family members.
