Irish Trial on pause because of U2

From the Irish Times:

Deliberations delayed by U2 concert

Deliberations in the trial of five men accused of involvement in a €2.28 million “tiger kidnapping” robbery will not begin until next week because several jurors have tickets for tonight’s U2 concert.

The jury of seven men and five women is expected to begin considering a verdict on Monday at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court after Judge Tony Hunt ended proceedings early today, on day 56 of the fourteen week trial.

David Byrne (36) of Old Brazeel Way, Knocksedan, Swords; Niall Byrne (27), of Aughavanagh Road, Crumlin; Mark Farrelly (37), of Moatview Court, Priorswood; Christopher Corcoran (61), of Bayside Boulevard North, Sutton; and Jason Kavanagh (34), of Parslickstown Court, Ladyswell have all pleaded not guilty to falsely imprisoning the Richardson family on March 13th and 14th, 2005.

They also pleaded not guilty to robbing Ian Richardson and Securicor on the same date.
