A recent court sitting heard that the case has required extra time by Gardaí, due to the nature and complexity of the investigation.

The judge ruled that if no directions are given from the DPP by next week, the case could be struck out.

Sligo Pride have criticised the lack of information from the DPP and highlighted worries among the local LGBTQI+ community over the future of the investigation.
