They’re due to stand trial later this morning before three judges of the non-jury Special Criminal Court.

The trial of four men accused of abducting and beating Quinn Industrial Holdings director, Kevin Lunney, is due to get underway today.

They’re due to stand trial later this morning before three judges of the non-jury Special Criminal Court.

Our Courts Correspondent Frank Greaney reports:



"Kevin Lunney claims he was abducted by a gang outside his family home near Derrylin, Co Fermanagh on September 17th 2019.

The father-of-six claims he was then physically assaulted before being left by the side of a road in Cavan two and a half hours later.

Luke O’Reilly from Mullahoran Lower, Kilcogy, Co. Cavan; Darren Redmond and Alan O’Brien, both from East Wall in Dublin, and a fourth man who can’t be named for legal reasons, are accused of false imprisonment and assault causing serious harm.

The trial was originally set down for a date in January but has been delayed until now due because of public health concerns arising from the pandemic.

It’s due to open later this morning and could take up to 12 weeks."
