The jury in George Redmond's corruption trial at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court has retired to a hotel for the night before they resume their deliberations tomorrow.

Judge Joseph Matthews dismissed the jury of three women and eight men for the night on day-17 of the trial after they had deliberated for four hours.

Mr Redmond (aged 83) of College Gate, Castleknock, 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 Dublin when he was an Assistant County Manager.

He denies receiving £10,000 from Mr Dunne on a date between October 10, 1985 and June 26, 1989 as an inducement in respect of the compulsory purchase order (CPO) and to receiving the money 'as a reward for showing favour to another' in relation to the same land.
