Man charged with ex-GAA star’s murder
This is the man charged with the murder of a former Fermanagh GAA player earlier this week.
Gary Philip Moane (34), from Lisolvan Park in Brookeborough, Fermanagh, appeared at Strabane Magistrates Court yesterday morning where he was charged with killing Ciaran Woods at a house in Tempo on Tuesday.
Mr Moane faced charges of murder, malicious wounding, threats to kill and hijacking a Honda car.
Detective Sergeant Steven McIntosh said he believed he could connect him to the charges.
Mr Moane did not speak but, through his solicitor Gary Smyth, expressed “regret and shock” at the events of Tuesday.
District Judge Liam McNally said none of the victim’s family were present in court but that he would note the defendant’s comments.
Several members of Mr Moane’s family were in court for the hearing.
The accused was remanded in custody for four weeks and will appear at Enniskillen Magistrates Court on August 16 via videolink.
