"I don't think there were any instructions given by the IRA," Ahern said on Tuesday, adding: "Elements, probably of criminality, claimed they had links with republicans."

Since the murder, several notoriously anti-republican journalists have claimed that the IRA killed Rafferty while others have said that Sinn Féin members were responsible. This has been vehemently denied by Sinn Féin from the outset.
