Jogger tells of brief chat with Elaine O'Hara

The jogger who was the last person to see Elaine O'Hara before her disappearance has spoken at the Central Criminal Court of his brief conversation with her.

Architect Graham Dwyer is charged with murdering Dublin childcare worker Elaine O'Hara (36) in Co Dublin on August 22nd, 2012. He has pleaded not guilty.

The jogger, Conor Gilfoyle, told the court on Monday that he met Ms O'Hara while out running near Shanganagh Cemetery, Shankill, on August 22, 2012. Ms O'Hara stopped him to ask directions to a railway bridge, he said.

'There is a bridge but you can't immediately see it due to an incline,' said Mr Gilfoyle.

She asked me was there a bridge over there, or something to that effect. I said "Yes. There's a bridge just over there for the railway." One of the reasons I remember her was because she didn't say thank you or have any engagement with me.' The court also heard from Ms O'Hara's former employer, Ken Robertson, who described her as 'a very private person,'
