THE FUNERAL OF Tom O’Gorman is to be held in Castleknock tomorrow.

The 39-year-old was killed at his house in Castleknock on 12 January. His lodger, 34-year-old Saverio Bellante, has been charged with the murder. It’s understood the two men had been playing a game of chess before the killing.

O’Gorman had worked at Catholic lobby group the Iona Institute for the past seven years. His family, friends and colleagues attended a service at St Teresa’s Church in Dublin city centre last week to pay tribute to him and remember his life.
