After sentencing the three men convicted of the killing of Edward Meenan, Judge Donna McColgan QC thanked the members of the jury for presiding over a “harrowing and difficult case” and excused them from further service for life.

There will have been relief at that news. The details of the killing of Mr Meenan emerged over a seven-week trial earlier this year, often in graphic detail. It is something most people would not wish to sit through again.
