Man remanded in custody in relation to Good Friday killing

A man was remanded in custody today charged with a gun murder almost two and a half years ago.

Michael Taylor, from the Summerhill area of north inner city Dublin, appeared in court in relation to the Good Friday killing in April 2007.

Paul Kelly was shot several times at his sister’s apartment on the Charlemont Road, Clontarf when he opened the front door.

Mr Kelly, aged 26, was a father-of-two from the Gardiner Street area of the city.

The Courts Service said Taylor appeared briefly before the Bridewell district court in Dublin.

The 29-year-old was remanded in custody to Cloverhill prison and was ordered to appear at Cloverhill courthouse next Wednesday.
