This boy was 14 at the time.

A 16-year-old boy has been sentenced to two years detention for his role in a violent confrontation that led to the death of Cork IT student, Cameron Blair.

After his release, the boy, who can’t be named because he’s under 18, will also have to spend two years under the supervision of probation services.

Our Courts Correspondent Frank Greaney reports:



"The boy’s behaviour on the night of Cameron Blair’s death was described as immature and fuelled by bravado and a perceived invincibility.

Despite not knowing them, Cameron let him and two of his friends into a house party in Cork city on the 16th of January last year.

Following a dispute over a drug deal, the three friends armed themselves with knives.

A violent confrontation later developed outside, during which one of them stabbed Cameron in the neck. He has already been sentenced for his murder.

This boy was 14 at the time. The court heard he was threatening and abusive as he tried to force his way back into the party. He also punched a girl in the face.

He was handed a four-year sentence today. Half of it will be spent in detention while the remainder will be under the supervision of probation services in his community."
