A MAN IS due in court on charges related to the murder of a man in Kilkenny 14 years ago.  

The man is his 30s will appear before Carlow District Court this morning. 

Gerry Nolan died following a fire at his home, a caravan, in Deerpark, Castlecomer, County Kilkenny on 24 July 2006.

Emergency services were called to the scene at 4.30am on that day in 2006 and battled to extinguish a blaze that had engulfed one of the mobile homes in Deerpark.
