Retrial Ordered For Man Convicted Of Abrakebabra Murder


Share this article


A retrial has been ordered for a man convicted of a murder outside an Abrakebabra 17 years ago.

Brian Rattigan was jailed for life in 2009 after a jury found him guilty of stabbing Declan Gavin to death at Crumlin Shopping Centre.

Last December, the Supreme Court quashed Brian Rattigan’s murder conviction after deciding certain comments made by the trial judge went ‘further than were desirable’.

Today the Prosecuting barrister told the Supreme Court the DPP believed there was a sufficient case to bring the trial before the Central Criminal Court.

While Brian Rattigan’s barrister argued against another trial taking place for a number of reasons including the time since Mr Gavin’s death and adverse publicity.

The Judges have now ruled that the trial should take place again.

Brian Rattigan - who has an address at Cooley Road in Drimnagh- wasn’t present in court when the decision was made.
