A 73-year-old Corkman has appeared in court this morning charged with the murder of Nora Sheehan 41 years ago.

Det Insp Eamon Brady of Macroom garda station told Skibbereen District Court that at 8.45am today he arrested Noel Long at his home at Maubawn, Passage West.

The accused was then conveyed to Bandon garda station where he was charged with murder. He made no reply after caution.

The prosecution claims that on dates unknown between June 6 and 12, 1981, at a place unknown, in the District Court area of West Cork, that he did murder Nora Sheehan.

The court heard that the mother-of-three from Ballyphehane, Cork city, was last seen on June 6, 1981, and her body was found on June 12 at The Viewing Point at Shippool, Innishannon.

Sgt Paul Kelly said the DPP has directed prosecution on indictment at the Central Criminal Court on one count of murder, or Mr Long could be sent forward on a signed plea should that arise.

Judge James McNulty remanded the accused in custody to appear at Clonakilty District Court on July 5.
