Patrick Quirke is due to appeal his conviction for the murder of his love rival Bobby Ryan . The 50-year-old farmer from Breanshamore, Co. Tipperary, is serving a life sentence after being found guilty by a majority verdict three weeks ago. The prosecution claimed he murdered the local DJ in June 2011

Some are expected to centre on rulings made in the absence of the jury by trial judge Ms Justice Eileen Creedon.

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.

'We must be all together against violence' - Sophie Toscan du Plantier's son calls for Irish public to support murder trial

'We must be all together against violence' - Sophie Toscan du Plantier's son calls for Irish public to support murder trial THE son of murdered French woman, Sophie Toscan du Plantier (39), has publicly called on Ireland to support the Paris murder trial next week over his mother's killing as he said his family had firmly placed their trust in the people of west Cork. "Sophie fought like a lioness against the most atrocious violence there is," Pierre Louis Baudey-Vignaud (37) said. "The violence used by a monster that nothing stops - the one that struck her for no reason, for nothing." "I still come back here every year because it is the only way for me to defy this violence and destroy it." "For 20 years I have trusted you. Do not betray me. Do not betray yourselves," he said.

FARMER Patrick Quirke has been given a date in October to bring an appeal against his conviction for the murder of Bobby Ryan . Quirke , 50, of Breanshamore, Co Tipperary, had denied murdering Bobby Ryan , a part-time DJ going by the name ‘Mr Moonlight’, who went missing on June 3, 2011

The defence claimed its position was harmed when she made comments to the effect the prosecution did not have to prove the location of Mr Ryan's death.

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.

Mr Ryan (52) disappeared on the morning of June 3, 2011, after spending the night at his girlfriend Mary Lowry's home in Fawnagown, Co Tipperary.

'No One Would Listen': Cleared of Murder, After 33 Years in Prison

'No One Would Listen': Cleared of Murder, After 33 Years in Prison “Mistakes happen in all aspects of our lives,” he said at a news conference. “But there was intentional misconduct here.” Mr. Sini said his office’s nine-month review of the case confirmed several other problems with the case. The key witness who recanted her testimony was never seen at the party. And Mr. Bush’s description in his confession — that he had stabbed Ms. Watson with a Afro-pick comb before she died — did not fit the forensic evidence, because very little blood was found on her white sweater.

Quirke was convicted of the murder of Bobby Ryan earlier this month.

It was alleged by the prosecution during the case that Quirke killed his victim so he could rekindle an affair he had with Ms Lowry between 2008 and 2012.

It was also alleged Quirke staged his discovery of the body in a run-off tank on Ms Lowry's farm in April 2013 as his lease of the property was going to be terminated and he would be unable to keep the body hidden.
