Finné

Inspired by recent Netflix-style documentaries, Finné is a home-grown documentary series commissioned by TG4 featuring the human side of big Irish stories that have made the headlines over the past 50 years. Filmed over 12 months by Galway’s Magamedia and presented by RTÉ’s courts correspondent, Orla O’Donnell, Finné revisits gross miscarriages of justice that have taken place in Ireland in the recent past.
 
This Week:
Osgur Breatnach reveals how he was wrongly convicted of one of the biggest robberies in Irish history, the Sallins mail train robbery in 1976. During interrogation in Garda Síochána custody, he signed an alleged confession, but suspicion was later cast on these confessions as he, along with his co-accused, presented with injuries after being in Garda custody, and thus began his efforts to clear his name.
