However, requests to discharge the jury over these issues were rejected by the trial judge.

She also rejected an application from the defence for a direction to the jury to acquit Quirke on the grounds the evidence against him was speculative and any conviction would be unsafe.

Another application to discharge the jury centred on remarks made by the judge in her charge to the jury.

Ms Justice Creedon rejected the application, but clarified her remarks to the jury.

She said that in fact what the prosecution had to prove was that the death of Mr Ryan occurred in Co Tipperary, but in law it did not have to prove a specific location.

The judge also told the jury that the time, date and location of the killing were an issue in the case, but it was up to them to decide what weight to give to evidence and that they needed to bear in mind the burden of proof was on the prosecution.
