FATAL BLOW 'MADE PULP OF BRAIN'.

Byline: SUZANNE MacMANUS

A MAN found dead at the bottom of a well was killed by a blow to the head that reduced his brain to "pulp", a court heard yesterday.

Eugene Daly, 26, has denied unlawfully killing his 69-year-old uncle Patrick on January 18, 1996.

The Central Criminal Court heard that Patrick may have been killed before his body was dumped into the well on his farm, where Gardai had found him after he was reported missing by a neighbour.

Mr John Edwards, prosecuting, previously told the jury that it was the state's case that the accused and his father Sean acted together in bringing about their relative's death.

He said family rows erupted over the running of Patrick Daly's farm.

Eugene Daly, with an address at Dooneen, Kilcummin, Killarney, Co Kerry and his father, Sean Daly, had worked on Patrick Daly's farm in Dooneen, Kilcummin, Killarney, Co Kerry.

The pair shared the rents and profits.

But there had been rows over the sale of animals and other matters, the court heard.

The case before Mr Justice Paul Butler and a jury of six men and six women continues today.
