A 42 year old man has been sentenced to five years in prison for killing another man at a B&B in Palmerston. Terry Connors of Drumcairn Avenue in Tallaght was found guilty of the manslaughter of Peter Conroy in 2015. He had denied murder.
During his trial, the court heard both Terry Connors and Peter Conroy stayed at the Palmerstown Lodge B and B in 2015.
A number of residents had been at a wedding on June the 8th and a row broke out when they returned to the B&B in the early hours of June 9th. Connors was concerned about his children and went to investigate.
The court heard he stabbed 25 year old Peter Conroy three times during an arguement that followed.
The jury found him not guilty of murder but guilty of manslaughter just before Christmas.
