Murder trial told of phone evidence

The Shane Geoghegan murder trial has heard that the defendant's phone was used in an area and at a time where a previous witness said he discussed the killing.

The jury heard the technical evidence on day nine of the trial at the Central Criminal Court.

The Garryowen captain was shot around 1am on November 9, 2008 near his home in a case of mistaken identity.

Barry Doyle (26), a father-of-three from Portland Row, Dublin, has denied his murder at Clonmore, Kilteragh, Dooradoyle in Limerick.

Maps of an area in east Limerick were yesterday given to the jury on which two Meteor mobile phone cell sites and a pub were marked.

Eamonn O'Garvey, a radio engineer with Meteor, testified that a mobile phone number, already identified as belonging to Barry Doyle, used both cell sites on the morning of the murder.

The trial continues.
