THIS is the key exchange between Paul McBride (PM), acting for Gail Sheridan, and Matthew McColl (MM):
PM: "Do you know the club, Adam and Eve?"
MM: "I have heard of it."
PM: "Been in it?"
PM: "That is not true."
MM: "It is true."
PM: "You know it is a lie."
MM: "I have not been in the club."
PM: "Whether embarrassment or not wanting to tell the truth in compliance with your oath, you have been in that club."
MM: "Are you able to prove I was in that club?"
PM: "You have been in it."
MM: "I may have been in that club many years ago … the answer is yes, I have been in that club."
PM: "Why lie about it?"
MM: "I don't know the answer to that."
PM: "You accept that if I had not asked that additional question, the jury might have thought you were telling the truth."
MM: "They may have done."
PM: "We now know that in relation to that, at least, you are not a truthful man."
