Ireland Hero garda gives CPR after Dublin Marathon runner has suspected heart attack
Man jailed for eight years for repeated sexual abuse and rape of his younger brother
Over the course of a decade, John Murphy abused his brother who was aged between ten and 20 years old. The abuse took place in the family home in a town in Cork between 1988 and 1997. The Central Criminal Court heard that the victim, now aged in his 40s, wished to waive his anonymity so that his abuser could be identified.
