Serial rapist Michael Murray back in Dublin
Serial rapist Michael Murray is living in an affluent part of south Dublin, near to where he carried out one of his terrifying sex attacks.
Murray — who attacked six women, raping four of them, over six days in 1995 — was spotted walking down Merrion Road in Ballsbridge over the weekend. The rapist has grown a beard.
Over the past couple of weeks Murray has been living in short-term accommodation in Dublin 4. The 50-year-old was released from prison in July last year after serving 13 years for rape and sex attacks. He had received five years' remission.
One attack involved an assault on a 22-year-old Trinity College student.
Murray grabbed her and sexually assaulted her before stabbing the woman seven times in the chest and back.
The attack happened only a few hundred metres from where he is staying now.
Murray is taking court action against the Herald and other newspapers over alleged breach of his privacy. The case is expected to be heard in October.
