Price, who was also convicted along with her sister over the 1973 fatal car-bomb attack on the old Bailey in London, died earlier this week at her Malahide home in Co Dublin.

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

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.

Usual comments from loyalists ...based on absolutely no evidence that Marian has actually committed any offence. Yet we see gazza spouting about poor wee fleg protestors on remand cos they were caught in the act ..what a pillock.

Shame on anyone who would begrudge a person who was granted leave to attend a loved ones funeral.The kray twin was even granted leave to attend his brothers funeral. What sort of person would object. Well let me tell you. A moran. Surely this person serverd time in jail andpaid the price. The only thing i can see hear are comments from people who clearly dont like republicans in general. So we have a bunch of morans always waiting and watching, ready to stick the boot in whenever a republican does anything wrong. Well you know what we will never move forward while people like those morans amongst us continues with this sort of attitude. GET A LIFE.
