The case was mentioned before the Court of Appeal today.

The DPP has raised concerns about the transcripts from Aaron Brady’s trial being published on social media.

Last August, the 29-year-old, from Crossmaglen, Co Armagh, was found guilty of the capital murder of Detective Garda Adrian Donohoe.

His defence team is working on his appeal at the moment and his case was mentioned before the Court of Appeal this morning.

Brady’s barrister, Michael O’Higgins, assured the court that neither his client nor his legal team would make the transcripts available to anyone.

An order was also made to hand them over to the defence team on condition that they’re not distributed elsewhere without prior court approval.
