Case of Tullamore man who stole up €250,000 is put back to January

Laurence Murphy from Tullamore was remanded on continuing bail until January

The case of a Tullamore man who defrauded people out of money when he posed as an auctioneer for Savills in Dublin, was put back to January 31 2022, when he came before Tuesday’s December 21 circuit court.

Laurence Murphy, Clonminch, was due to pay €81,000 compensation to this week's court. He had paid €30,000 on Thursday December 9.
