A full inquest into the killing of three IRA men in Northern Ireland in 1991 will begin next September, a coroner has ruled.

Peter Ryan, Tony Doris and Lawrence McNally were killed by the SAS in an ambush in June 1991 as they travelled through Coagh in Co Tyrone.  

Justice Michael Humphreys said on Thursday the aim is for a full inquest into the killing of the three men to begin on September 12, 2022, at Banbridge Courthouse.

At a pre-inquest review hearing on Thursday, the coroner urged all parties involved in the inquest to keep to that date.

Mr Humphreys said it would take something ‘out of the ordinary’ for the current date of the inquest to be interfered with.

‘It is very important we maintain that window,’ he warned.

‘If for any reason we fall outside that window, we’ll only be competing with other hearings.’

‘The very firm view of this tribunal is that those dates should be maintained and every possible effort will be expected from practitioners and from those engaged in this inquest generally to make sure they’re adhered to.’

‘I obviously can’t legislate for every possible eventuality, but it would take something rather out of the ordinary to cause those dates to be interfered with,’ he warned.

Mr Humphreys said he wants any reviews of sensitive materials by the Police Service of Northern Ireland and the Ministry of Defence to be carried out by January 31.

He said a ‘realistic date’ for disclosure of both sensitive and non-sensitive material to the families involved, ahead of the inquest, should be the end of March.

Mr Humphreys described it as a ‘target date’, which was agreed to by all parties.

The judge also acknowledged the lengthy nature of proceedings and the impact that may have on the disclosure of some material.

‘The passage of time may allow some further disclosure to be made,’ the coroner suggested.
