The trial of seven people accused of murdering a man over a stolen mobile phone has been shown footage of five of them running from the scene.

The six men and one woman deny murdering Dale Creighton (20) on a footbridge over the Tallaght bypass in the early hours of New Year's Day 2014.

Sergeant Brian Cagney identified Graham Palmer of Park Avenue in Co. Laois as one of those on the footbridge.

He also pointed out his co-accused: Jason Beresford of Castledermot, Co. Kildare, and David Burke of Beechpark in Collinstown, Co. Westmeath.

They could be seen beating Mr. Creighton, he said. He went on to identify Mr. Beresford dragging him towards the steps and said Mr. Burke could be seen lifting him off the ground and onto the steps.

Another angle showed five people running back towards Tallaght village while some blue lights flashed in the distance.

He identified them as: Beresford, Palmer, David Burke, his sister Aisling and Ross Callery of Gortlum Cottages in Brittas, Co. Dublin.

They, along with James Reid of Glen Aoibhinn, Gorey, Co. Wexford, and Gerard Stephens, who has an address at Grosvenor Square, Rathmines, in Dublin, deny murdering Dale Creighton.

The trial will continue on Tuesday.
