Jury Will Visit Location Of Tipperary Murder Scene

A jury selected in the murder trial of a Tipperary farmer, latter who pleaded not guilty to the murder of a 52-year-old man in Co. Tipperary, have been informed that they are required to visit the possible location of this incident, during the estimated forthcoming eight week trial period.

The court case, involving 50-year-old Mr Patrick (Pat) Quirke of Breanshamore, Co. Tipperary, was due to get under way today at the Central Criminal Court, however, Ms Justice Eileen Creedon has asked the jury to return to Court next Friday, when it is expected the trial will at last begin.

Ms Justice Eileen Creedon informed the jury that the incident at the centre of this trial is alleged to have occurred in Co. Tipperary and it could be beneficial to the case if they were taken to that location in the coming week, by coach.

The accused, Mr Patrick Quirke, denies the murder of Mr Bobby Ryan, latter a lorry driver and part-time Disc Jockey, at an unknown location on a date between June 3rd 2011 and April 13th 2013.

The accused Mr Quirke had been arrested on Tuesday March 21st, 2017 at 5.10pm in Grangemore, Co. Tipperary, before being brought to Tipperary Garda station, where he was later charged at 6.30pm.

Having been presented before a sitting of Tipperary District Court, Justice M/s Marie Keane had remanded Mr Quirke be held in custody to appear at Thurles District Court on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017.

Mr Ryan’s body was located in a slurry tank on a farm at Fawnagown, Co. Tipperary, having been previously classified as a missing person for almost two years.
