Kevin Lunney claims he was bundled into the back of a car and driven to another location where he was beaten up and doused in bleach.

Four men accused of falsely imprisoning and seriously hurting an executive of Quinn Industrial Holdings have gone on trial after pleading NOT guilty to all charges today.

Kevin Lunney, a 51-year-old father-of-six, claims he was bundled into the back of a car and driven to another location where he was beaten up and doused in bleach.

Our Courts Correspondent Frank Greaney reports:



"On his way home from work on September 17th 2019, Kevin Lunney claims he was bundled into the back of a car by two masked men.

It is the prosecution’s case that he was then taken to a container on the land of one of the accused, where he was told to resign his position at Quinn Industrial Holdings

He claims he was stripped and subjected to a beating, which involved being struck with something that broke his leg and being marked with a Stanley knife.

In an effort to conceal their tracks, the prosecution say he was then doused in bleach before being dumped in a ditch by the side of a road in Co Cavan.

Darren Redmond and Alan O’Brien, who are both from East Wall in Dublin 3, Luke O’Reilly of Mullahoran Lower, Kilcogy, Co Cavan and a fourth man who can’t be identified have pleaded NOT guilty to falsely imprisoning Mr Lunney and causing him serious harm."
