Four men have appeared before the Special Criminal Court charged in connection with the murder of a man outside a pub in Co Meath.

Peter Butterly was shot dead four years ago.

The men were arrested in the early hours of Friday morning in Dublin, Cavan and Meath.

On the afternoon of March 6th 2013, 35-year-old Peter Butterly was shot a number of times outside the Huntsman Inn in Gormanston in Meath and died from his injuries.

Four men were brought before the Special Criminal Court on Friday morning charged in connection with the shooting.

The court heard 58-year-old Frank Murphy, of McDonough Caravan Park in Bettystown, was charged with the murder of Mr Butterly, membership of the IRA, possession of a gun and ammunition to commit murder on March 6th 2013.

When the charges were read out to him in court he replied 'All bulls**t, all lies.'

His older brother - 60-year-Laurence Murphy who also lives at the caravan park - was charged with membership of the IRA and said 'not guilty, deny everything' when the charge was put to him in court.

A third man, 60-year-old Michael McDermott of Riverdale House, Garrymore, Ballinagh in Co Cavan, was charged with the murder of Mr Butterly, membership of the IRA, possession of a gun and ammunition to commit murder.

And a fourth man 37-year-old Ray Kennedy of Whitestown Drive in Blanchardstown, Dublin 15 was charged with membership of the IRA.

All four men were remanded in custody to appear before the Special Criminal Court again next Thursday.
