Barry Petticrew pleaded guilty to three charges of possessing explosive substances with intent, possession of articles useful to terrorists and possession of ammunition.
 
The court heard that among the terrorist cache was three power units which were never seen before in Northern Ireland and 500 kilos of high grade nitro based fertilizer used in home-made explosives.
