Former Sinn Féin Councillor Jonathan Dowdall has been charged with the murder of David Byrne, who was shot dead at the Regency Hotel in Dublin five years ago.

David Byrne was shot dead when five men, some of whom were disguised as armed gardaí, stormed a boxing weigh-in at the Regency on the 5th of February, 2016.

Jonathan Dowdall was brought before the Special Criminal Court this morning, charged with his murder. The DPP has directed that the ex Sinn Féin Councillor be tried before the non-jury court.

The 43-year-0ld's barrister said they were going to reserve their position on whether to challenge that decision.

His father, Patrick Dowdall, appeared before the same court last week charged with helping a criminal organisation to carry out the murder by making a room at the Regency available to the organisation the day before.

Jonathan Dowdall was remanded in custody and he’s due back in court in June.
