The Court of Appeal has confirmed that Graham Dwyer’s conviction appeal could be heard this Autumn

Graham Dwyer, an architect who is originally from Bandon, is appealing against his 2015 conviction for the murder of childcare worker Elaine O’Hara in Dublin three years earlier

49 year old Dwyer was handed a significant boost in April when the Court of Justice of the European Union ruled that the indiscriminate retention of mobile phone data for use in criminal investigations is a breach of EU law.

Phone data played a critical role in the evidence against Dwyer as it was used to track his movements and contacts with Elaine O’Hara in the run up to her disappearance in August 2012.

The case will be mentioned again in July to allow lawyers to update the court on what progress has been made.
