The trial of a 36-year-old man accused of the murder of a man shot dead in Dublin almost two years ago has been adjourned until Wednesday.

Freddie Thompson, with an address at Loreto Road, Maryland, Dublin 8, is charged with the murder of David Douglas at Bridgefoot Street in Dublin on 1 July 2016.

The 55-year-old father-of-one died after he was shot several time outside the entrance to the Shoestown shop on Bridgefoot Street.

Defence Counsel Michael O' Higgins told the Special Criminal Court that "a good part of the case is not going to be in dispute", that it would not be about what happened but what it means.

He said the prosecution case should "flow efficiently" but there were some outstanding disclosure issues, one in particular which was significant and would take the greater part of the day.

He applied for the case to be adjourned and prosecuting counsel Sean Gillane agreed.

Mr Gillane told the three judges that the request for disclosure was only "generated in recent times."

Mr Justice Tony Hunt remanded Mr Thompson in custody to appear again at the Special Criminal Court on Wednesday.
