Legal history was made last week  when the first criminal trial ever to take place in Croke Park opened before a jury.

The Central Criminal Court trial took place at GAA headquarters to facilitate social distancing and other public health safety measures during the Covid-19 pandemic.

At the opening of the trial shortly Justice David Keane told the jury of eight men and four women that they were participating in “a little piece of history”.

He said that to facilitate public safety measures Croke Park had kindly made the facilities at the arena available to the Courts Service and this is the first Central Criminal Court trial to be conducted here.
