Phone link to Omagh bomb plot; COURTS 2.

Byline: ALAN ERWIN

A PHONE registered to a builder accused over the Omagh bomb plot can be traced to within 5km of the town an hour before the explosion, the High Court heard yesterday.

An investigating detective said Colm Murphy's mobile could be linked to the area by mast coverage analysis.

But he said the Co Louth man is not suspected of being in Omagh on the day of the Real IRA attack in 1998.

Murphy, 60, a Dundalkbased contractor and publican, is being sued with former employee Seamus Daly, 32, from Cullaville, Co Monaghan, over the atrocity which killed 29 people.

Both men deny the claim being brought by some of the victims' relatives but are being retried after their appeals against being held liable were upheld.

The relatives claim Murphy supplied mobiles to the bomb team and Daly is linked by a call he allegedly made on one after the blast. At hearing.
