Woman convicted of 'astonishing and ghoulish' manslaughter loses appeal

A mother-of-four has lost an appeal against her conviction and 10-year sentence for killing an English new-age traveller and submerging his body in a slurry pit.

The Court of Criminal Appeal has found it was “by no means convinced” that the conviction of Una Geaney for the “astonishing and ghoulish” manslaughter of Gary Bull was either unsafe or unsatisfactory.

The 47 year old was jailed two years ago after she was found not guilty of murder but guilty of the manslaughter of Gary Bull near Dunmanway in West Cork in 2007.

Two co-accused received nine year sentences for manslaughter.
