Factual error: When the General is shot as he comes out of his car, you can see an electronic black parking meter behind him. The film is set in 1996 and this kind of parking meter wasn't introduced until 1999.
Factual error: When the two Gardai (Police officers) are watching over Guerin's house after she was shot in the leg they are sitting in their car drinking coffee from Starbucks disposable cups. Starbucks did not enter the Irish market until long after the events dipected in this film. In Ireland at that time it would be more likely that they would be drinking tea out of a flask.
Factual error: In one of the scenes in the pub, there is a new model of the Heineken draught tap seen behind the bar. Those taps did not come in until 2000 and the film is set in 1996.
Factual error: When Veronica is in hospital she seems to be flicking around different TV channels and keeps finding Irish news programs. At the time these events took place, only one Irish station, RTE1, was broadcasting news in English. All the clips shown on the TV are from RTE1's news - they just show different newsreaders from the same station.
Factual error: When Veronica is driving back from the court house just before she is murdered, you can see a car in the background (a Mercedes M-class). The license plate begins with "02", meaning it was bought in 2002, but the film is set in 1996 and the M-class wasn't even available until 1998.
