His phone then called a vet some seconds later. Within a minute of that the phone called voicemail and a minute later called Mr Quirke’s wife two more times. On the last occasion the call lasted for 36 seconds.

The last outgoing call made by Bobby Ryan was at about 9pm on June 2 when he called his son Robert. The following day Robert texted his dad at 9.44am saying: “Da, you not working today?”

Radiologist Dr Anthony Ryan told Michael Bowman SC for the prosecution that he carried out a CT scan of Mr Ryan’s body in May 2013. He discovered multiple fractures to the head, face and ribs and a fracture to the femur - a bone in the upper leg.

He said the injuries were a result of at least four impacts and could have been caused by road traffic accident or blows with a blunt object. The injuries to the face were most likely from a direct frontal impact.

A witness in the Tipperary murder trial has told the Central Criminal Court that murder accused Pat Quirke seemed unperturbed after the body of Bobby Ryan was found on her farm in April 2013. Mary Lowry was giving evidence for a second day in the trial of Patrick Quirke of Breanshamore

Patrick Quirke says Mary Lowry had ‘couldn’t care less attitude’ after disappearance . Mr Quirke (50) of Breanshamore, Co Tipperary has pleaded not guilty to the murder of Mr Ryan - a part-time DJ going by the name Mr Moonlight - on a date between June 3rd, 2011 and April 2013.

He said that when he sees such injuries from a hammer he expects the face to be “depressed” but this injury was not like that, leading him to believe the injury resulted from an object larger than a hammer. He added that the face could have impacted with a wall, the ground or a vehicle and that it was hit with “considerable force”.

He said such fractures are usually caused by falls from a significant height or when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle. The witness said he had seen hundreds of these type of injuries but had never seen them caused by anything other than a fall or a road traffic accident.

While the witness said a bat could be used to fracture the femur, the u-shaped nature of the fracture raised a doubt about that possibility.

He further explained that when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle they suffer injuries from the impact with the car and then suffer further injuries when they hit the ground or anything else in the environment. Mr Staines also asked the witness about pieces of concrete that fell on the body when the lid of the tank was removed by gardai using a digger.

Dr Ryan said the fragments could have caused some of the injuries he observed to the ribs but he did not believe falling concrete caused the fractures to the face and skull or the femur. Under reexamination the witness told Mr Bowman that for a vehicle to cause the injuries he saw it would have to be travelling at more than 30 kilometres per hour but more likely closer to 50 kilometres per hour.

The trial continues in front of Justice Eileen Creedon and a jury of six men and six women.
