The trial of three alleged members of the Real IRA has been adjourned at the Special Criminal Court.

Mr Justice Paul Butler, presiding, said more time was needed to consider an application that has been made by defence counsel for two of the accused.

Adrian Kirwan (aged 25), a native of Ballymun in Dublin, with an address at Ardilaun Green, Ballymahon Road, Mullingar, Co Westmeath and Colum Wiggins (aged 24), of Annagry, Letterkenny, Co Donegal each pleaded not guilty to membership of an illegal organisation styling itself the Irish Republican Army, otherwise Oglaigh na hEireann, otherwise the IRA on December 5 last year.

Sean Connolly (aged 26), of Bernard Curtis House, Bluebell, Dublin denied membership of an illegal organisation on December 14.

A ruling on the application is expected tomorrow.
