A REAL IRA man was jailed for three years after pleading guilty to membership of an illegal organisation. Dubliner Ruairai Convey, 25, had pleaded guilty to membership of the IRA last June 6. The court heard that during a search of his home in Newbrook Avenue, Donaghmede, detectives found a hand-written note containing the names of two members of the Garda Emergency Response Unit. When he was arrested Convey had a roll of film showing four armed and masked men saluting Robbie Doolin, the former RTE actor and Real IRA member who died in 2000.
