Dundon trial to resume tomorrow

The trial of John Dundon for the murder of Garryowen rugby player Shane Geoghegan will resume at the non jury Special Criminal Court tomorrow.

When the case was mentioned today prosecuting counsel Mr Tom O’Connell SC said that one of the main prosecution witnesses, Ms April Collins, was fit to give evidence and his instructions were to resume the trial tomorrow.

The trial was adjourned earlier this month after the court heard that Ms Collins was unable to give evidence for medical reasons.

Mr O’Connell, opening the prosecution case earlier this month said that Mr Geoghegan was was the unintended victim of a shooting that was meant for another man and was ordered by John Dundon.

Mr O’Connell told the court it was the prosecution case that the actual target was a man named John McNamara, who lived close by the deceased in the Limerick suburb of Clonmore.

Mr O’Connell said the court would hear from key prosecution witness Ms Collins, who would give evidence that John Dundon ordered another man, Barry Doyle, to kill John McNamara.

He said Mx Collins would tell the court that she heard John Dundon give Barry Doyle a description of John McNamara and say that “everything was prepared, the gun and the car”.

John Dundon (aged 30), with a last address at Hyde Road, Limerick, has pleaded not guilty to the murder of 28-year-old Shane Geoghegan at Clonmore, Kilteragh, Dooradoyle, Limerick, on November 9, 2008.
