A man has gone on trial accused of murdering another man in a gun attack at Bray Boxing Club three years ago.

Gerard Cervi, from East Wall in Dublin city, is also accused of the attempted murder of two other men, including boxing trainer Pete Taylor.

Bobby Messett was shot dead when a lone gunman opened fire inside Bray Boxing Club just before 7am on June 5th 2018.

The 50-year-old, along with several others, were taking part in a training session that morning, which was led by Mr Taylor.

He and another one of the participants, a man called Ian Britton, were also shot but survived the attack.

It is the prosecution’s case that 34-year-old Gerard Cervi was the lone gunman who entered the gym that morning and fired nine shots from a semi-automatic pistol.

Mr Cervi has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Mr Messett and the attempted murders of Pete Taylor and Mr Britton.

The trial is due to take up to eight weeks.
