Gerard Lynch, 29, of Main Street, Pallaskenry, appeared before Newcastle West District Court this Tuesday morning where evidence of arrest, charge and caution were read out in relation to the murder of his older brother Willie Lynch, 35, from Pallaskenry, on December 30.

The court heard that Garda Alan O’Donnell of Pallaskenry Garda Station charged Gerard Lynch on Monday evening, January 1, at Newcastle West Garda Station.
