A MAN has been charged in relation to the murder of Bobby Messett at Bray Boxing Club in June.

Mr Messett, a 50-year-old father-of-three, died when a gunman opened fire during an early-morning gym session at the club.

Tonight, a man in his 30s appeared before a special sitting of Bray District Court, which was due to get under way at 10.30pm.

A woman in her 20s, arrested in Dublin on Saturday evening as part of the investigation, has been released without charge.
