Victim told dad 'lover was into bondage'

By Brian Hutton

A childcare worker allegedly murdered by a successful architect told her father she was in a relationship with a married professional man who tied her up during sex games, a trial has heard.

Frank O'Hara, father of Elaine O'Hara (37), whose remains were found in the foothills of the Dublin mountains, said he was shocked when she made the outburst during a row.

The pair had been arguing at his home in Killiney, south Dublin, in 2008, when she said that she was seeing a professional man who was married.

Ms O'Hara said the man would tie her up and carry out a sex act but they hadn't had sex, Mr O'Hara told Dublin's Central Criminal Court.

"She said he was an architect in Foxrock. I was shocked."

Graham Dwyer (42) with an address at Kerrymount Close, Foxrock, south Dublin, denies murdering Ms O'Hara at Killakee, Rathfarnham, Co Dublin on August 22, 2012.
