Two of three men charged with the murder of a Carlow Town native in Australia are to re-appear in court today.

Cian English, who was 19 at the time and originally from Bullock Park, was living in Brisbane when he suffered fatal injuries after falling from a fourth-floor balcony in the early hours of May 23rd last year.

It’s understood he was trying to escape being robbed at knifepoint following an apartment party.

Two of the three accused men are due to appear before Southport Magistrates Court today with a third male due on September 30. There are two female minors who are also charged with the teenager’s murder.
