A Dromiskin man found guilty of directing the activities of a terrorist organisation will be sentenced next month.

Seamus McGrane from Little Road, Dromiskin in Co Louth, was discovered plotting a bomb attack during the visit of Prince Charles to Ireland two years ago after he was secretly recorded by Gardaí discussing explosives and a target of military significance in a pub in Dublin.

He had pleaded not guilty to the offences but was convicted of directing the activities of an unlawful organisation, the IRA, between April 19 and May 13, 2015 and of membership of an illegal organisation last month.

The 63-year-old is only the second person to be convicted of directing terrorism in the Republic following on from Blackrock man Michael McKevitt, who was jailed for 20 years in 2003.

His sentencing will take place on December 7th.
