Evil gang butcher is freed for Christmas

A crime boss who helped chop off a dentist’s fingers has been allowed out of jail to spend Christmas with pals.

Fergal Toal — who was a member of notorious terrorist Dessie ‘The Border Fox’ O’Hare’s INLA terror gang — was thrown back in jail after being caught running a cocaine factory in Co Tyrone.

During his time in O’Hare’s bloodthirsty mob, Toal callously held down kidnap victim John O’Grady’s arms while two of his fingers were hacked off with a hammer and chisel.

On Thursday we watched as Toal, 48, and 52 other prisoners strolled out of Ulster’s jails for two weeks of freedom for the festive season.
