Two men charged with murdering Killarney man, Thomas Dooley, a married man with seven children and a number of grandchildren have been further remanded in custody for two weeks.
An application for bail is being made to the High Court on behalf of one of the men, the dead man's brother, Patrick Dooley, Tralee District Court was told.
Thomas Dooley, who was 43 and from Hazelwood Drive, Ballyspillane in Killarney, was fatally stabbed before 12 noon on Wednesday last week at Rath Cemetery, Tralee where a funeral had been taking place.
His wife Siobhán was also injured in the attack.
The victim’s brother, 35-year-old Patrick Dooley of 33 Arbutus Grove, Killarney and his cousin, Thomas Dooley who's aged 41, with an address at Bay 10, Halting Site, Carrigrohane Road, Cork were due before Tralee District Court via video link today.
Patrick Dooley didn’t appear on camera as he'd been quarantined in prison, the court was told.
Patrick Dooley's solicitor, Padraig O'Connell consented to a remand in custody, to appear again before Tralee District Court on October 26 via video link.
Mr O'Connell said an application is being made to the High Court for bail for his client, as bail can't be sought in the district court on a murder charge.

Gardaí said an extensive file was being prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in this case, and sought to remand Thomas Dooley in custody for four weeks.
