Patrick Quirke’s appeal for the murder of Bobby Ryan is to begin next month.
The farmer from Breanshamore in Co Tipperary is appealing his conviction for the murder of Bobby Ryan.
In May 2019, Quirke was found guilty of murdering his love rival - the local DJ also known as ‘Mr. Moonlight’.
The jury convicted the 50-year-old farmer by majority verdict after deliberating for just over twenty and a half hours.
The case was mentioned before the Court of Appeal this morning, which heard there is a fair bit of material involved.
The Judge noted it was ‘all systems go’ and the appeal will start on October the 13th.
The court heard it can be dealt with remotely, meaning the appeal will be done by video-link.
