A man arrested in Northern Ireland in connection with a gangland-style murder in Dublin is to contest extradition proceedings, a court in Belfast was told.
Gary Flynn (29) from Dublin, had been subject to a European Arrest Warrant in relation to the shooting of father-of-two Seamus O'Byrne in Tallaght four years ago.
An extradition hearing in Belfast High Court heard that Flynn was arrested in Ballymoney, Co Antrim.
His lawyer, Philip Breen, said his client did not consent to being extradited. Judge Patricia Smyth remanded the suspect in custody to appear again on Friday.
Late last year, Garrett O'Brien (35), from Clover Hill in Bray, Co Wicklow, was found guilty of Mr O'Byrne's murder and sentenced to life imprisonment.
