Clare man to contest murder charge

The man arrested in connection with the murder of Brian Fitzgerald last week has appeared in court again today.

Anthony Kelly’s solicitor told the Limerick District Court that his client wishes to contest the charge of murder saying there is no basis to the allegations. He insisted his client would be pleading not guilty to the charge.

At the hearing today an application was made for a one month adjournment to allow the book of evidence to be built up for the case and the man was remanded to appear again in late November.

The 49 years old businessman was arrested in the village of Barefield last Sunday.
