Trial of Craughwell man who threatened to kill neighbour adjourned

Galway Bay fm newsroom – The trial of a Craughwell man who threatened to kill his neighbour has been adjourned.
48 year old David Corbett of St Clerans, Craughwell, Co Galway, is facing three charges at the Circuit Criminal Court in Castlebar.
They relate to alleged threats to three people on dates between January 2012 and February 2014, which led them to believe he intended to kill or cause serious harm to his neighbour, Ian Quinn.
According to the Irish Times, Mr Corbett is facing a further charge of harassing Mr Quinn on dates between March 10th, 2012 and July 31st, 2015, but is pleading not guilty.
65 year old Ian Quinn is the founder of Galway based medical devices company, Creganna.
A jury of four women and eight men was sworn in for the trial which began in Castlebar last week.
However, the judge today told the court that the trial is likely to take much longer than expected due to ‘various matters arising’, and excused them from duty.
The case has been listed for mention at Galway Circuit Court on Friday.
