Text messages, mobile phone records and a decision to allow jurors to watch graphic videos of architect Graham Dwyer are likely to form the basis of the convicted killer's appeal.

Dwyer (42), from Kerrymount Close, Foxrock, Dublin, is serving a life sentence, having been found guilty of murdering Elaine O'Hara (36) on August 22, 2012, at a remote spot in the Dublin Mountains.

Yesterday morning, the State received formal notice of Dwyer's intention to fight his conviction following one of the most high-profile criminal trials in recent years.

The new Court of Appeal, which has been working through a backlog of criminal law cases, could hear Dwyer's appeal by the end of the year.
