A 31-year-old man has appeared in court charged with the murder of a man at Bray Boxing Club earlier this year.

Gerard Cervi of no fixed abode was charged and appeared before a special sitting of Bray District Court.

Bobby Messett, 50, was shot dead at the club just before 7am on the morning of 5 June.

Several shots were fired and two other men, including boxing trainer Pete Taylor, were shot and injured in the attack.

Mr Cervi was remanded in custody as he is facing a charge of murder and bail in such instances can only be granted at the High Court.

He was granted free legal aid and is due to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Tuesday 18 September.

A woman in her 20s who was also arrested in connection with the attack was released without charge.

A file will be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions.
