A HIGH COURT bid by the mother of a murdered Limerick boxer to prevent his killer being transferred to a UK jail has been resolved and the man will now stay in prison in Limerick.
Tracey Tully, the mother of Kevin Sheehy, was given permission for a judicial review of a Ministerial decision to sanction a transfer of the convicted murderer Logan Jackson from Limerick to a UK prison.
Today (Wednesday) the proceedings were resolved following Justice Minister Helen McEntee’s announcement that she would rescind her decision on the transfer.
Tracey Tully’s 20-year-old son was killed by Logan Jackson at Hyde Road, Limerick, on July 1 2019.
The trial heard that Jackson slammed his four-wheel-drive vehicle into the champion boxer three times, leaving him dead.
The Tully family last week took their protest to Dáil Éireann where the family and supporters raised placards calling for Jackson to be kept in jail here.
When the case was mentioned before the High Court today (Wednesday) an order was made that costs on both sides should be paid by the State.
