The trial of Dublin architect Graham Dwyer, charged with the murder of childcare worker Elaine O'Hara, was due to get under way on Tuesday (January 20).

The trial was originally listed for April, but will open at the Courts of Criminal Justice on Tuesday, following the selection of a jury on Monday, and is expected to run for six weeks.

Elaine's father Francis (Frank) O'Hara who lives in Killiney, is originally from Parnell Street in Wexford.

Mr Dwyer, a 41-year-old architect from Kerrymount Close in Foxrock, has been charged with the murder of Ms O'Hara, at an unknown location in Dublin on August 22, 2012, which is the day she went missing.

Ms O'Hara was last seen at Shanganagh Cemetery in south Dublin, where she was visiting her mother's grave.
