The corruption trial of George Redmond at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court has continued in legal argument and the hearing of evidence is expected to resume today.

Mr Redmond (aged 83) of College Gate, Castleknock, a former assistant county manager, has pleaded not guilty to two charges arising out of a compulsory purchase order on 167 acres of land at Buzzardstown and Coolmine, in north-west County Dublin.

He denies receiving Ir£10,000 from the late Fianna Fáil councillor, Mr Patrick Dunne, on a date between October 10, 1985 and June 26, 1989 as an inducement in respect of the compulsory purchase order and to receiving the Irl£10,000 as a reward for showing favour to another in relation to the same land.

The hearing continues before Judge Joseph Matthews.
