CONVICTED IRA bomber Marian Price has been granted Crown Court bail following the death of her sister Delours.

However, it will now be up to Parole Commissioners to decide whether to release Price for the funeral next week.

Marian Price Glinchey is currently being treated in Belfast City Hospital.

Delours Price, who was also convicted along with her sister over the 1973 fatal car-bomb attack on the old Bailey in London, was found dead on Thursday at her Malahide home in Co Dublin.

At this stage, gardaí are not treating Wednesday night’s discovery of her body as suspicious.

But it is believed she may have died from a drugs overdose.

Her remains to west Belfast on Friday afternoon and her funeral will take place on Monday at 11 am.

In court on Friday, there was confusion as to whether or not 58-year-old McGlinchey was already on bail in relation to the two sets of charges she is facing.

While Judge David McFarland granted bail, he added that it will now be a decision for the Parole Commissioners whether or not she is to be released.

McGlinchey, of no fixed address, stands accused of providing a mobile telephone for the purpose of terrorism – in relation to the murders of two soldiers at Massareene barracks in Antrim in 2009.

She is also charged with aiding and abetting a meeting in support of a proscribed organisation, after being accused of holding a speech for a masked man at a dissident republican rally in 2011.

She denies the charges.

McGlinchey had been granted bail in 2011, but was not released due to the then Secretary of State Owen Paterson’s separate decision to revoke her early release licence.
