The boy was ordered by Judge John O'Connor at the Dublin Children's Court to appear again on May 6 and the teen's father was excused from attending the next hearing.

Lorcan O'Reilly (21, below), from Robert Emmet Close in south inner city Dublin, was stabbed in the Oliver Bond flat complex in the early hours of November 1 last year.

The incident happened at about 2.30am when he had been at Halloween festivities with friends.

He sustained a single stab wound to the heart and was rushed to St James's Hospital but was pronounced dead a short time later.

The boy, who is from south Dublin, is charged with the murder of Lorcan O'Reilly contrary to common law.
