Irish Daily Mail - - News - By Tom Tuite

A FA­THER of four charged with the mur­der of Irene White, who died af­ter a stab­bing at her home in Dun­dalk in 2005, has been sent for­ward for trial to the Cen­tral Crim­i­nal Court.

Niall Power, 45, of Gyles Quay, River­stown in Dun­dalk, Co. Louth, faced his sixth hear­ing when he ap­peared at Clover­hill Dis­trict Court yes­ter­day.

Ms White, 43, a separated mother of three, was killed in the kitchen of her Co. Louth home on April 6, 2005.

Her mother, Mau­reen McBride, found Ms White ly­ing on the kitchen floor when she called to the house at lunchtime that day.

Mrs McBride lived in a mo­bile home in the gar­den and would reg­u­larly drop into her daugh­ter’s home.

Ms White died of 34 stab wounds in the kitchen of her home, the Ice House, Demesne Road, Dun­dalk. The case was re­viewed by the Garda cold case team, and a pub­lic ap­peal for in­for­ma­tion about her death was made in 2016.

Mr Power is the sec­ond man to be brought be­fore the courts over the death of Irene White.

PhD stu­dent An­thony Lambe, 35, from An­nadrum­man, Castle­blayney, Co. Mon­aghan, was charged in Jan­uary 2017 with Ms White’s mur­der and was jailed for life in Jan­uary this year af­ter plead­ing guilty at the Cen­tral Crim­i­nal Court.

Mr Power re­mained on bail on his own bond of €200 with a €3,000 in­de­pen­dent surety. He has not yet in­di­cated how he will plead.

Mur­der charge: Niall Power
