Motorcyclists and bike users now make up 20pc of road deaths Cyclists and motorbike riders now account for almost one in five fatalities on Irish roads, prompting concern among gardaí and road safety chiefs. 

The Central Criminal Court has heard the case against Patrick Quirke was based on a theory and not any hard evidence. The jury has begun hearing the closing argument from the defence in the trial of the 50-year-old farmer who is accused of murdering his love rival Bobby Ryan.

Patrick Quirke relied on Mary Lowry emotionally and financially. Her husband Martin, best man at Quirke ’s wedding and brother of Quirke ’s wife Imelda, died in September 2007. Almost immediately Quirke started farming what was now Mary Lowry ’s land at Fawnagowan.

Mary Lowry, who was in a relationship with DJ Bobby Ryan when he was murdered by jealous rival Patrick Quirke, has said she will not get involved in civil cases being taken by the dead man's children against his killer.

Bobby Ryan Jnr and his sister Michelle are suing Co Tipperary farmer Quirke, who was sentenced to life in prison earlier this year following a high-profile trial.

The High Court actions were initiated by the siblings last week. The cases are being classified as personal injuries actions, indicating Mr Ryan's children will be seeking damages from their father's murderer.

"I'm not getting in the middle," she added.

Ms Lowry is now living in a two-storey home on the outskirts of Bansha, Co Tipperary.

Quirke's property empire, both home and abroad, is estimated to be worth around €2m. But he is believed to have been hit with a €132,000 loss on one of his Polish property investments.

Quirke was one of a syndicate of Irish farmers who invested in a €21m office block in Warsaw during the boom years.

He is believed to have invested €140,000, according to a source familiar with the scheme.

Investors - including Quirke - got a return of 6pc of their investment last month, which works out at €8,400.

Quirke's finances have suffered mixed fortunes since he murdered Mr Ryan in 2011. A vulture fund took over his loans in January this year, according to land registry records.

The charges on three folios registered in the name of Quirke and his wife Imelda were transferred from the former Bank of Scotland Ireland to Pepper Finance in January this year, the records show.
