Share this article


A Dublin man has been found guilty of murdering two men in county Louth in 2012.

Jason O'Driscoll, with an address at Richmond Avenue, Fairview, had denied murdering 31 year old Anthony Burnett and 25 year old Joseph Redmond.

Anthony Burnett and Joseph Redmond, both from Ballybough in Dublin, were found dead in a burnt out car in Ravensdale Forest Park in Co Louth on the 7th March in 2012.

Both men had been shot in the head. Mr. O'Driscoll had denied murdering the men.

However, after over 7 hours of deliberations the jury recorded a majority guilty verdict of 10 to 2 in the case of both murders.

The jury began their deliberations on Monday, with the judge telling them yesterday that a majority verdict would be acceptable.

The judge thanked the five women and seven men for fulfilling 'a great civic duty' and excused the jurors from further duty for 15 years.

Sentencing has been adjourned until Tuesday the 2nd of October to allow both families prepare victim impact statements.
