The poster of Jimi Hendrix in the jail cell is a 1993 MCA reissue.
In in Belfast apartment, as Mr. Conlon is preparing to go to London to help Gerry, he throws some CDs in his case.
Gareth Peirce, a solicitor, is seen addressing the court. At the time of the trial, solicitors did not have "rights of audience" and could not, therefore, address the court. At that time, only barristers could do this.

Continuity 

At the end, Gerry's shirt changes color between when he walks out of the courtroom and when he talks to reporters outside.
The clip from The Godfather, which the inmates are watching just before they murder the prison guard, is out of sequence.
When Gerry is released from prison, policemen standing behind him on the steps disappear and reappear between shots.
In the relatively short scene where Gerry is speaking with their Atty., the guard behind Gerry alternates position and stance in each shot - head down (and looking asleep) and then moved to the side and alert in other shots.

Errors in geography 

When Paul and Gerry arrive in London they are seen walking the streets looking for Paddy's house. As they reach the street corner the street sign for 'Huskisson Street' can be seen - there is no street named this in London, only in Liverpool (the location of the take).
