The state's evidence in the trial of five men accused of being involved in a €2.28 million "Tiger kidnapping" concluded this afternoon at Dublin's Circuit Criminal Court. 36-year-old David Byrne of Old Brazeel Way, Knocksedan, Swords; 27-year-old Niall Byrne of Aughavanagh Road, Crumlin; 37-year-old Mark Farrelly, of Moatview Court, Priorswood; 61-year-old Christopher Corcoran, of Bayside Boulevard, Sutton; and Jason Kavanagh, aged 34, of Parslickstown Court, Ladyswell; deny the charges of false imprisonment and robbery. The five men are accused of holding Securicor staff member Paul Richardson, his wife Maria and their two sons hostage, and with robbing €2.28 million from a Securicor van at Lower Road, Strawberry Beds in March 2005. The court was told that three armed men forced their way into the Richardson's house in Ashcroft, Raheny, forcing them at gunpoint to sit on a sofa. The court was told a jeep then pulled up with two men inside, and Maria and her two sons were taken to a wood and tied-up. It is alleged one if the accused - Niall Byrne, a former Securicor employee - was the 'inside man'. The trial has lasted 50 days so far, and the defence team will now begin evidence.
