A convicted gunman who was caught with a massive haul of bomb making equipment in Kinawley in October 2014, appeared in Antrim Crown Court today, and is due to find out how much longer he will serve in jail next week.
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.
The 45-year old was caught red-handed in a police undercover operation on the Fermanagh border.
In custody since the raid on the Fermanagh farm buildings at Kinawley on Wednesday October 8, 2014, Petticrew, orginally from Belfast, had been living in Swanlinbar in Co Cavan at the time.
