The Court of Appeal has set aside two days in December.

A date has been set for Graham Dwyer's appeal against his conviction for the murder of Elaine O'Hara.

The Court of Appeal has set aside two days in December to hear the case.

It has been seven years since Graham Dwyer was found guilty of murdering Elaine O’Hara, whose remains were found in the Dublin mountains in September 2013 - a year after it’s believed the childcare worker was killed.

In 2018, Dwyer’s lawyers successfully challenged a law that allowed for the indiscriminate retention of mobile phone call records and location data.

Given the potential consequences for the investigation of serious crime, the State appealed that decision to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court sought clarity from Europe. Europe ruled in Dwyer's favour and the State abandoned its Supreme Court appeal, which paved the way for him to try and have his conviction overturned before the Court of Appeal.

December 1st was set down today for the first of what will be a two-day hearing.
