A MAN IN his early 30s has been charged in relation to the murder of Shane Geoghegan in Limerick four years ago.
RTÉ reports that John Dundon of Hyde Road in Limerick appeared before the Special Criminal Court this morning.
Geoghegan, 28, was shot dead near his Limerick home in the early hours of 9 November in a case of mistaken identity.
One person has already been charged and convicted of the murder of the Garryowen rugby player but, at the time, Gardaí indicated that the investigation was not complete.
Barry Doyle, 26, confessed to the killing but later retracted that admission. Doyle, who is originally from Portland Row in Dublin, was jailed for life after the trial heard he shot the victim five times, including at least once in the head. It is understood that the 26-year-old was instructed to kill another man.
The intended target was John McNamara who lived four doors down from Geoghegan in the same Limerick housing estate.
The DPP directed earlier this week that the case against the second man could go ahead. It also said that he should be charged at the Special Criminal Court in Dublin to ensure the effective administration of justice.
