A 17-year-old boy who has been charged with the murder of Tristan Sherry in Blanchardstown on 24 December 2023, has been granted bail after successfully appealing a previous High Court decision denying his application.

The teenager, who cannot be identified because he is a minor, was granted bail by the court subject to a number of conditions, including that he stays away from a list of named individuals, that he observed a curfew, that he surrendered his passport and that he sign on twice a week.

However, in a judgment delivered today, the Court of Appeal upheld the High Court’s decision to refuse bail to two other men charged with the murder.

Mr Sherry, 26, was attacked after opening fire inside Browne’s Steakhouse on the night of 24 December.

Jason Hennessy Senior was shot in the neck and upper body while having a meal with family and friends.

He was taken to hospital, but died on January 4.

Two other co-accused David Amah, 18, of Hazel Grove, Portrane Road, Donabate, and Michael Andrecut, 22, of Sheephill Avenue, Dublin 15, have also been charged with Mr Sherry’s murder.

They will both remain in custody after the court found that their risk of flight was “significant” and could not be effectively addressed by imposing rigorous bail terms and conditions.
