RTE1 19:30, 22 September 2014 Nicky Kelly Padraig O'Driscoll examines the case of Nicky Kelly, who with Osgur Breatnach and Brian McNally was jailed for the 1976 Sallins Mail train robbery - one of the biggest and most dramatic thefts ever committed. With the only evidence against the trio being statements made during interrogation in garda custody, his co-accused managed to restore their freedom within 18 months. However, after a period on the run, Kelly spent four years in prison, and did not receive a Presidential pardon until 16 years after the robbery, with no explanation given as to how such a miscarriage of justice could ever have happened.
