Man jailed for life over Finbarr Dennehy murder
A 42-year-old man has been sentenced to life in prison after pleading guilty to the murder of another man in Dublin last year.
Michael Downes, of no fixed abode, received the sentence at the Central Criminal Court today.
Fifty-year-old Finbarr Dennehy was found dead in his apartment in Clontarf, north Dublin, in September 2007.
In a victim impact statement, his family said he was a loving brother and uncle and a loyal, true friend.
They said it was a constant nightmare to them that he died terrified and alone.
