UDA Commander & Loyalist Gunrunner | Frank Portinari | Bought The T-Shirt PodcastOn Bank Holiday Monday, 31st May 1993. I was arrested in Birmingham by armed police officers.

On release from prison I engaged in many discussions regarding the structuring of the peace process. On Wednesday 18th May 2011. I was sitting in the National War Memorial Gardens in Dublin.
