Trial of Killarney Mayor put back to next year

7 Oct

The trial of the Mayor of Killarney on charges of allegedly breaching ethics legislation has been put back until next year. Fianna Fáil Cllr Patrick O’Donoghue is facing charges of breaching the Standards in Public Office legalisation, in relation to attempts to rezone land near his family owned Gleneagle Hotel. The case was before Tralee Circuit Court today, where it was put back to the next call-over of the court, with a view to going ahead in February or March. The trial is expected to take a week due to a large number of witnesses.
